Ohlins spring rate

I am going to buy an Ohlins rear shock from a 150lb friend for my 919. I weigh 170. I called Dan. I gave him the spring #. He said the spring is rated for 180 lbs. At 170 plus gear and I'm at the limit of what the spring is rated for.

It seems that I read somewhere that Ohlins springs are underrated. That is that they are "stronger" than they say. I'm hopng I won't need to change the spring. What do the Ohlins owners think?

You should be fine. But, you'll know for sure when you set your sag. Someone on here could probably give you some digits.
