Questions about a Gen 2 Busa shock on a gen 2 ZX10.

Ok I've read as much as i could find.

So far the ONLY questions i have are.

1. I've read some use the zx14 spring? Is this on the busa or zx10 shock?

2. I know somebody with a gen 2 busa shock with a zx14 spring.
Would this be more stiff than a busa spring on a busa shock?

Thanks

After more searching I've found the busa spring is stiffer than the zx14.

Busa 14.5kg/mm
ZX14 9.7kg/mm

The busa would be better for me. According to racetech's calculations.

Why not just buy the right spring for your weight from Racetech
and respring the 10's shock?

Entering my weight on racetech.
Says i need a 12.196kg/mm

Im thinking after lowering and stretching +6" it should be in the right range with 14.5kg/mm.
