Suspension KX65

What's the preferred set up? I'm ~130 lbs. There's probably another 20 lbs in gear on top of that. I'm bone stock on the bike right now (susp wise).

Stiffer front springs?
Rear ohlins? Any cheaper options?

I have got a used set of stiffer front and rear springs that I would sell for $100. They should work for your weight, but the rear was too soft for me at 205 lbs. The fronts work for me now.

Send me a PM if you haven't found anything yet, and I will give you the details.
