In this forum some one had a link to a spring rate calculator, that by putting in coil diameter, spring diameter, and number of active coils, it would determine the springs rate, I tried it and came up with a number that I presume to be in foot lbs. I reason this because the site is a automobile racing site and these springs are rated in foot lbs. How do you convert theis to metric, I know a tough question, but seeing how I bought mybike used and cannot get access the previous tuner, I'm trying my best to determine what my fork spring rates are,,,, Thanks if you can answer this.
