I emailed race tech for a spring replacement, Mike at Race tech referred me to Cannon Race Craft.

Cannon Race Craft is going to hook me up with a heavy duty shock spring for my yz 80 for a 210 lb rider, and my bike wont bottom out just from sitting on it!

I just need to give top and bottom ID's and free length but I dont know if I need a special tool to take the old spring off the shock so I can properly measure it.

 Anyone with rear shock spring removal experience off of an 83 yz 80?

Just ordered my new spring from Cannon Race Craft for my yz 80.
Spring strength will be for a 210 lb rider.
 I think stock spring is 3.9 and my new spring will be 5.6 or something like that.

They custom make the rear shock springs for your weight so  if anyone is interested in getting a stronger spring.... Cannon Race Craft.
