Here's my favorite site. This is the main page with all the info.  You can click on calculate spring rates for the forks and the rear shock.  It will have a popup that asks for you personal info so make sure you allow the pop up.

It looks like you have to call for the rear spring... or maybe I'm just to heavy?

Yes, I have been to that site in the past.  However, the only year they listed for our bike is 2008!  Am I missing something?
