LDH is your man.

However I think that the 110 is referring to N/mm
Considering the fact that the stock uses a 95 N/mm spring and it is adjusted for the average 170 -180 lbs rider (including gear), I'd say this is for a 200 -210 lbs (incl. gear) rider.

Assuming this is the spring you were referring to for your 04-07 1000RR that spring is good for 190-210lbs in gear.

That spring will not work properly on an RC51 shock due to its very short 150mm length which will coil bind on the longer 63mm stroke of the HO-204.

How much do you actually weigh?

I've got an exceptionally linear titanium spring that fits that 1000RR shock I no longer need too, but it is only a 10.6Nm which is slightly lighter than the 110Nm you have currently.

Let me ask you.. If my spring is set for a 210 lb rider wet, what will happen, if any, if I weigh 225 wet?

In this particular instance it will not be a problem for you if you are just street riding. There is a lot more leeway on how this shock will work with various weight ranges through the progressive linkage than there are with a lot of other shocks.

If you are track riding then you will need to better match the spring to your weight.

When you say wet weight does that mean in full gear?
