Project Acid Reflex - TLR200 - Rear Spring Rate?

Next TLR200 question - anyone know the OEM rear spring rate for a TLR200?

The one I just bought has Progressive Suspension rear shocks on it, with 155/200 rear springs. It is WAY too stiffly sprung, it's nearly a hardtail with my girlfriend on it.

Currently with the 155/200 setup:
1-2mm static sag
20mm sag with my 125# girlfriend on the bike (it's primarily her bike)
29mm sag with me on the bike (185#)

She'll be trail riding the bike, I'll be riding it in vintage events. I'm thinking that we'll want about 30% sag with her on it, about 40-45% with me on it.

Will the stock springs work? If so, does anyone have any stockers floating around they'd be willing to sell?

Hopefully the damping isn't too high on these progressive shocks, but I'm guessing it will be...

Thanks again for your help, this forum has been great.
