Default 2002 ZR 800 rear suspension

My friend has a 2002 ZR 800 EFI, we are in the process of pull out the rear suspension and working on it.
The shocks are being revalved and rebuilt for his wt. of 280lbs.
New suspension springs are being put in (FAT BOY SPRINGS)
My question is what front track shock SPRING should I put on with the other mods?

Thanks Alan T

Haha well, Cat doesn't call them "fat boy" springs, but generally speaking, the "fat boys" are the square stock springs of desired strength. I think cats actually name for them is "heavy duty"

It has nothing to do with square vs round

Like I said Cats has dozens of springs you can choose from diameter,coil, degree of bend

I like my .452 75deg or 83deg ones I bought they came stock on the Pantera,I weighed 265ish at the time when I had my ZR

Check what the ZR 800 front track shock coil was and go up stiffer size IMO if you wish, I just got the above mention rear springs and kept the stock front track spring after I revalved my shocks
