I think you are correct and they are 0.9kg. I have the lightest springs Race Tech makes in and I still had to back the preload nearly all the way off just to get to 25mm of sag. I weigh 155 lbs w/o gear. Can't imagine how big you'd have to be to need springs heavier than the Daytona's.

Oh, and I kept the Daytona forks because after buying a set of ST3R forks, it was just too much black.

I'm @ 160 (w/o gear) and with 7 lines of preload showing (OEM springs), I 'm getting 22mm of SAG, lol. I guess this would be ideal if I did a lot of wheelies, lol.
