    Not sure of color(too lazy to take apart fork) but u def will need an xtra heavy spring.I'd suggest running a 10w or 12 w oil also. It works for me and im 220lbs. Even my friend that weighs 245 rarely bottoms his fork and hes got the grace of an elephant. Your LBS should be able to order up the correct springs out of thier catalouges. The stock springs were a joke for the big guys i ride with. were all over 200 xcept for the 1 token skinny guy 130lbs soaking wet. Good luck man.
    I watch the O.C. cause it makes me happy...

    If misery was money i'd be the richest man on the planet.

    hmmm...I am 210....I run a heavy and a regular spring....I also think 7.5 weight is the best for the fork. I run mine at 80 mm from the top...no problems bottoming and the fork works smoother with the 7.5 weight
