2018 R6 Need Upgraded Springs

I'm building my bike for exclusive track duty and feel that the stock springs are too light for the job. I weigh 225# fully geared up.

It's been tough finding out the stock and recommended settings via the online tools that are available so I'm looking for advise on here before I go chat with my suspension tuner.

Re: 2018 R6 Need Upgraded Springs

you should sign up on a race forum like ccs or wera. there are also a ton of suspension shops that will give you the correct data. traxxion dynamics or race tech are 2 well known ones.
the front you will need stronger springs but you may be surprised the rear may need to be lighter. that's how the 2nd gen was. I"m going to go out on a limb and say about a .95 or a .98 is what they'll recommend. a .98 if you're fast. a .95 for intermediate pace.
