What are the spring rates front and rear for the 2014's? I think I read somewhere that the fronts are 1.0kg. Is that right?

I plan on getting the correct springs, as 99% of the bikes out there are over-sprung for me. The rear of the bike feels decent, but the front could be lightened up a bit I think. I need to set the sag and do some more riding to get a better feel, but after having correct springs on the 650, I want this bike dialed in as well. :) Oh, and I'm a whopping 155 with full gear on(faster by default, lol).

Ok, I found the rates. I somehow forgot about Racetech. :rolleyes:

Front is 1.0kg, rear is 9.6kg. So, the rear isn't too far off(including my weight plus the usual stuff I haul around), the front however, as expected, is over-sprung. So, there's work to be done! Hard to believe the front spring is that heavy though, as it feels much softer. Perhaps with some dampening adjustments and some different fork oil, I can get it "good enough" for now.
