Kdx 250 xc revalved suspension question

Hello, i am looking at a well maintained 2008 ktm 250 xc with few hours on new top end and a rebuilt/revalved rear shock (WER). It also as a much heavier spring since current owner is 220+. I am 185. Owner says he has original spring though.

I don't really understand revalving - seems from reading forums that people who get shock revalved do so for their riding style and weight. So even if i drop the spring weight back to the original, would the revalving affect me given the difference in weight between current owner and I? Or would I be fine with original spring? Forks are stock spring but also rebuilt and resealed. He said it is set up for woods if that helps, which is what I need.

I'd swap the rear spring, set race sag and ride it a few times. Use the adjusters, learn what they change and then start to set it towards what you like.

Finally, after you learn about what you want/need, you can tell a tuner that and they have a direction to revalve it towards. WER does great work, you might find you like it with the right spring in it.
