I weigh 205#.
No clue on the spring rates. I will look for any information on that. I sent Thor all of my information when I had the shocks rebuilt. I am assuming (there is that word again) they are close.
When I get it back together, I'm going to push the bump-stops down and see how much travel I am actually getting.

We are close in weight. My old Fox shocks bit the dust and I replaced with Gazi's. I liked the spring rates on my Fox's for the '81 SR but dont know just what they are because the paint dot code is gone from the blue springs. If you would like to give them a go to see if they work for you I can send them; if you like them I know I can give you a good deal.
PM me if interested and we'll talk.

If your shocks are toast, I would be interested in the springs. I will pm you later and we can sort out the details.

First photo is of the side panels with the louvers punched in.
Spent some more time on the tear down.
I have got to give the previous owner an "atta-boy". He greased the swing arm bolt nicely and it just pushed out with a light tap.

Last photo of the top steering race. Looked a bit dry!
