    Springs are pretty well worn after only 5000 miles. Trying to figure what the stock number is so I can order 1 size higher. Thanks!

    (It's listed in the repair manual, but not for my year's bike.) :thumb

    Found it. 4.8nm

    I'd go with, at least, the .64 springs. If you ride with any kind of load, you'll appreciate it.
