Is the 350-370 pounds your weight, plus riding gear, plus extra equipment added to the bike, plus (if a larger fuel tank) half of the additional fuel capacity.

So what would the combined weight be?

We need this information to determine the proper spring rates.

the springs rates look about right
were ever you decide to purchase these, you may need to wait for them to be custom made

you mite try Cannon Race Craft

Another thing to consider, with such a change in spring rate (positive+) having someone knowlegable tweak the rebound valving up (+) to control the stored energy these springs will generate.

good luck

Contact XR's Only and talk to someone that does their suspension work. See what they say.

You might try these guys too. They seemed pretty open minded about rebuilding the Ohlins on my old R1150GS and they're somewhat local. I opted to not get them rebuilt, but from my email banter with them they seemed very knowledgeable.
