Spring rate for Moment
My dhx has a 500# spring on it. I'm 165#'s soaking wet. Starting to think its a bit to much plus after 3 seasons its a bit compressed. Thinking I might want to try something like a 400-450# spring.
What are you dewds usin?
I'm in the same boat as you. I just got a 07 Moment with a 500# spring and it feels like too much. I just switched to the 450# spring but haven't had a chance to ride it yet because of the fires in so cal.
Geared up I'm at 200 lbs & use a 550# coil. Recently I switched back to the stock 500# coil & didn't like the performance & found it to bottom out much too easily even with putting 200 lbs+ in the piggy back.
So I'm back to the 550-# coil & its running really smooth & plush.

The size of the spring has more to do with setting proper sag with out going more than two turns on the adjuster nut. If you turn the adjuster too much the sprong coils will bottom out on each other.
I'm about 210 with gear and use a 600# with 1 and 1/4 turn of preload on the coil.
Have you tried to adjust the settings? You might also think about a rebuild. I'm thinking of sending mine to PUSH and get the pro treatment not just the rebuild.
I have 125psi in the boost
1 1/2 turns out on the bottom out
10 clicks of pro pedal
12 or 8 clicks of rebound (i think)
