2010 450 fx spring question

I reading in my manual I have a 7.2 spring on the rear.My suspension guy said Imout on the fringe of needing a heavier spring,I weigh about 210 with gear on he set sag and also told me fork springs should be fine. The ? is do i get the 7.6 or go with an 8.0 like a lot have done here.I love the bike but sometimes it doesnt stick in the corners.Could the spring being to light in the rear doing this? Thanks Rick

Yes, stock spring is soft and you are over the weight for them. What sag figures do you get? I'm 250 w/gear and just broke my new FE450 in with a 8.4 and .48s - VERY pleased with these springs so far, but have not hit any big jumps yet.

its set at 105 im figuring the heavier spring will make rear end ride higher and hopefully cure the front wheel settling the bike in the corners better . I love the power and the way it handles . i guess i will try the 8.0 and mess with the clickers a little more thanks Rick

My suspension tuner likes to run a heavier spring and lighter valving. Seems to work great on my FX450.
