My weestrom has a (now) 8 year old rear shock. When I bought it a year and a half ago, I cranked up the preload, but it's nowhere near where it should be for someone my size (I weigh 255lbs, and regularly have my SO at 115lbs riding pillion). This combination pretty much squashes the spring - I can totally see my low beam headlight target pointing much higher.

So, I'd like to replace the spring with something a lot stronger. I have not removed my rear wheel in the past (though I've done basic maintenance like lube and tighten the chain, and recently installed the peg lowering kit).

Is this something I could reasonably manage on my own, and if so, anyone have a good walkthrough?
