How do you determine the proper spring rate to order?
I would assume it has to do with weight.
I'm a generous sized person ( PC for Fat) and my son who rides with me a lot is a good sized boy (PC for not fat yet but has an easy road to it)
Which spring rate is best for larger riders?

Contact Steve at Makin Trax, he's very helpful and he doesn't pressure you to buy his springs, although they seem to be very popular.

I have been talking to Steve via email and telephone about his springs and I will be picking up a set within the next couple of days. He is a very cool dude and he will give you as much info as you need on suspension.

I put Steve's 300 lb. springs on the rear, and moved the OEM rear springs to the front. No preload on the front, just enough on the rear to achieve around 12" clearance (ab out 1/4" preload). Took all dampening off the shocks, and while it handled well, found it was still a bit stiff (I have two people at a total of about 340 lbs., tools, compressor, jack, spare tire, etc.). Spoke with Steve, who suggested I remove the sway bar link on one side in the rear. Did this, and it was so plush I actually had to turn the dampening up a bit. Like others have said, get with Steve, buy the King's, and take Steve's advice! :ride:

225 front and 300 rear, but only because I saw all the accessories......spare tire, lock&ride box(I imagined a complete craftsman tool kit in), two gas can holders ect. and you are not a petite guy. Shot in the dark.
