Ok y'all!

Im redoing the front fork springs on my 05 GSXR 750 and see if anyone here has recommendations. I'm a bigger rider 6'3 250lbs and I need a stiffer front end. Swapping out the springs is a must. Just want to see what people have recommendation wise here.

Thanks,
Nico

Im 6'0 at 165 and YES' the 750 needs to be resprung - front and rear - its way to soft n spongy....
I did springs only - race tec - have to check my log for what spring rate)

I also have a penske triple on the rear. I raised the rear 5mm and dropped the front 3mm,
first to compensate for the new springs) then 3mm more b/c I wanted it to turn in better, and I am now running the new dunlop 209 gp-a's - 190/60, which brings the back up another 2.5mm the bike handles so good, it's so fun in the turns, like on rails... and sticks like glue...

The stock spring rate is .85km/mm Race tech says you should use .95km/mm
Get good fork oil 2.5wt is fine, fill it to stock specs. remember bleed thoroughly. If it's still a little soft add a touch more oil
