Heavier rear spring for the Wee for passengers?
Hi folks. A couple people have mentioned elsewhere that someone my size should replace the rear shock spring with something heavier duty. I have a 2004 weestrom, I'm 6'6" and about 260lbs. The bike is comfortable and rides okay for me, but I'm sure i'm past the top end weight for that setup, and I occasionally have passengers (100-150lb).
So, what I need is a spring that'll accomodate my weight and have room left over (maybe after dialledin) for a passenger.
I have done very little motorcycle customiztion, so I don't even know if this is something I should even attempt on my own. I'm okay buying the parts and handing them to my mechanic, but I don't even know what part to get from where.
