they are variable or dual rate and soft.
I seem to recollect the intial being in the low to mid 0.70s and the high a touch over 0.80s.
Perhaps a range of 0.75 to 0.825, as in kg/mm
Again, they are soft, well, more like mush, and if the forks didn't have so much stiction on them they'd be even "divier" than they are on the brakes.

Mr. Mike is running 0.85s in his, along with a late model stock shock and spring, and he is very happy with that setup. I'd be listening to that. Apparently the stock rear is around 930 # /inch. I'm running 0.925 fronts with an 1100 # rear and feel that I have good balance. Which tells me that 0.85s in the front with a late model rear spring sounds right.
So you have one "using it and likes it" and at least one "sounds right" in terms of guidance.
