For me being a 240 lbs rider these springs sound correct. The Progressive
Spring sounds like a good choice to me. I use my Strom for sport riding, two up, gravel roads and fully loaded touring. If I used my Strom for just sport riding I would go with a consistently coiled spring. I could make up the intial softness of the spring with more preload. I would go with the Wilbers because you could also match the front coils to a new shock spring.
It is a good idea to revalve the forks while changing the fork oil and replacing the springs. You could probably just change the shims to get what you needed.
I didn't get any info from Race Tech, but I'm presuming that they have various springs that would work for the VS. They also sell Gold Valves, and high quality fork oil.

. It sounds like Klaus Huenecke is a good guy to deal with. E-Mail at [email protected]
