At what weight/skill level should i change my spring rate in my 2016 yz250. I am 170-175lbs without gear, id assume around 180-185 with gear. Bike was revalved with stock springs and stock valving/shims when i first got it and feels good, but as i am getting faster and it does feel a little bit of a harsh impact on flat landing or over jumping. im at. around 7-8 clicks from full hard on compression (both forks and shock) Can not remember where im at on high speed comp. mostly riding mx, but occasionally ride some tighter tracks.

You should get softer springs

I suggest talking to your suspension guy. Stiffness can come from valving changes or even more oil.
