Was wondering if anyone over 200 lbs that owns a Thruxton uses these? I am confused as to whether they are perfect for up to 200 lbs or over 200 lbs?

let me know
thanks

OK I did buy ones that are "heavy duty" so that makes me more at ease since they are already on the bike. How does it feel while riding being 1 inch shorter than stock?

Its not the 418 or 412 or whatever model you choose,its the "regular" or "heavy duty" that decides which springs they send on the shocks.Progressive has about a 1/2 dozen different springs available so you can fine tune them to yourself later if you need too. I`m at 200lbs fully dressed to ride and very rarely bottom the "regular" set I run. My springs are a 75/120lb set.
