    I have an 08 RFX w/ a CCDB, weigh about 180 in gear with a hyrdo pack on and I'm running a 500# spring. The bike feels great to me but I'm thinking of trying out a 450# spring just to see the difference as 450# is the size that I got from an online spring rate calculator for my weight and the travel of the RFX. Calculator is here: http://www.tftunedshox.com/info/spring_calculator.aspx, but I'm sure others on here with more experience will have recommendations for you as well. While how you tune your shock and what type of terrain you ride will certainly affect your choice, I'd be interested to see what works best for you.

    I have a 450lb spring and love it. I started with a 500lb it was very noticably stiffer. The 450lb would be my advice. It's super plush. Best $ I've spent on any part yet!

    I'm about 175lbs with gear on a 08 RFX w/CCDB with almost no preload on the spring

    This guy weighs 180 without gear. I just tipped the scale at 164lbs today which puts me the same as you. I only recently dropped from the 500# spring because I was closer to his weight.

    BTW...don't run a GD without the boot .

    Haha, you saw that huh! I won't run the GD without a boot but it won't be the stock boot that's for sure! I must have missed the 180lb without gear. Well, I guess he has hi answer then
