Have anyone had any experience with the Race Tech spring rate calculator?
I've read that they recommend a bit stiffer springs than needed.
I'm playing around with all the spring rate calculators I managed to find on the internet in order to figure out what springs to get for the back and front of my SV...
I've not yet reached to a solid conclusion... I'm 96 kilos without any gear...
For my skill level and the type of riding I want to do - Race tech recommended 9.2-9.4 kg/mm.. for the front and 8.60-8.69 for the back...

I found some Ohlins 9km/mm front springs and a К-Tech 8.5 kg/mm back spring so I'm wondering if this will be ok for a not so advanced rider of my weight... Or it will be too soft... I've ordered one K5 gsx-r600 shock that I intend to put in.
