    Info rqd on dhx spring rate on 05 bullit ?

    just got a new shock for my 05 bullit, a dhx4 and am trying to workout the best spring rate for a 200lb rider ?
    dont want waste money on one that wont suit !
    ive only the 5th ti 375 spring to try and its giving me 26 mm sag which i think is too much.
    according to the fox guide it should be 16/17mm
    i was thinking 500 or 550 spring would do.
    anyone any pointers ?
    cheers D

    I have an 08 bullit, not sure if the year makes a big diff. Im 200lb geared up and use a 550lb spring. Go straight to Fox for the correct spring. I looked and asked all over. Fox will give you the correct answer the first time.

    good luck
