Default What spring do I pick?

I'm looking to swap out my stock spring for something that suits my weight. I weight 175lbs without gear. Should I get the 550lbs or 600lbs spring? What is the spring dimension (is it 7 x 2.25)? I do mainly street riding on the bike. Nothing really aggressive.

Also does switching the shock out affect how the bike handle 2-up riding?

I have a spring you might be interested in, it is a Hyperco 7", I am 160 w/ gear and only ride track (advanced) so for your at 175 with only street riding, this might work. Since you want a little more plush of a spring. Not to mention we are talking about a 15-20 pound difference in actual weight, where as springs only come in like 50 pound increments.

Off the top of my head I am going to say it is 550... But there is a possibility it's 500. I need to pull it off the bike today to check, I am swapping to my new (refurbished) Elka which I just got from Steve at Fluidology, it uses a 6" spring so I will not need the 7".

I think you want to go with the 600lbs spring, especially if you're going to do 2-up.

For the Daytona the stock spring is 7.5" x 2.25". The problem is the spring is for carrying a rider weighting 300lbs. Good for two up. Not good for other uses.

I think the stock spring is like 7.5 but all aftermarket springs are 7". You use the preload to adjust the ride height... The same as the forks, stock springs are shorter then lets say Race Tech Springs. So you have to cut the preload spacer in the forks... For some reason, no one makes direct replacements, probably for a wider array of uses...

This needs to be moved to suspension and your question has already been asked and probably answered. I very simple search would get you there. check under mods and then suspension

I searched but everything that came up was spring recommendations for someone who's 150lbs or 190lbs.
