'98 FS 501 suspenders re-do

Howdy,
bought this bike from a kid who had lowered it. Being 6'5" and 260# nekked it's going to have to be re-done.

Anyone with similar bike and human build get me into the ballpark with spring rates and source?

Oil level for forks?


Anyone shimming the shock?

Did a search for "FS600" and came up nada.....

EDIT; It's an FS600E? Grrrr....

I Ride:
if you can get anything like a .050 fork spring or even a .052 that would be good.

as for the rear spring, try and go for a 60 rear as a test. i would thuink you need way more but you're off the regular scales there fella!
