Assumeing you have either a '00 or '01 the stock rear spring is a progressive 7.0-9.0 rate. They went to WP in the frt. with .38 fork springs. I would recomend throwing the progressive spring and installing a straight rate one somewhere around 8.8-9.0 Then I would replace the .38's up frt. with approx .48's. You could also play around with oil height & pre-load also. Just some suggestions, hope it helps.

My 520 exc has .48 in front and 9.2 in back and it looks like I will be doing the same on this one.
I will try 5wt oil on the 200 I have 7wt in the 520.
