The guy I purchased the bike from was about 6'3 and 350lbs :eek:. Needless to say, the bike is a lot faster with me riding it :D.

6'6" 275lbs - 290ish geared up (leather suits are heavy when they are that big!)

You will need to do a complete spring change to get the sag set correctly. You will also need the front end pre-load spacers.

From what I see, for a 316 lb rider, you'll need 1.1 or 1.2 Kg/mm fork springs, and 650 lb/in or 112 N/mm (or close) rear spring.

If you have the OEM rear shock, I suggest you go with aftermarket shock (Ohlins, Penske, Elka, etc.) so you can tailor the shock to your weight.
