    She is 230lbs, so obviously heavier the. The 160lb rider kawasaki set this bike up for.

    The stock damping in the shock can't handle the light spring that comes on it so if you go a heavier spring, it really needs revalving. It's easier to just replace the whole thing with something decent. The shock on these bikes are the one part they really cheaped out on to keep the costs down.

    I am 48 L and 52 R on the street and have touched both peg feelers down equally so I am guessing it is imperfect science but still kinda cool.

    I found a H2 sx se shock and installed it. Settings were left stock so far and it seems  much better than the old shock. It seemed to pogo to much and it felt like the bike was wallowing in curves that had sharp bumps. We will see don't have many miles on it yet as the roads are still winter dirty and cold here in Wisconsin

    I have a K-Tech shock with a 13kg spring which gives me much better clearance than the standard shock did. The left and right difference will also be affected by the camber in the road.
