You should be ok..

I am 187# and use a 450# TI spring on my 2003 V10. I am going to crank in my Volume & it should give me more progression.I bottom it out on small drops sometimes it feels like-wierd,but that's because my Volume is set almost all the way out......That should make a big difference..

But you should be ok with a 400# i guess.. A 425 would be better..

Ti Springs are the ONLY way to go.
Ti Springs are so much more progressive than a Steel spring.
With a Custom Valved shock and a Ti Spring, it feels like the rear tire just floats over EVERYTHING!!

out of curiousity, are the avalanche dhs and stratos el jefe exactly the same in terms of feel/ride??? I hear they are built very similarly, but i have never heard anyone compare the two in terms of riding/feel. I found an avy for cheap so i'm wondering if i should get it or stick wit the jefe(i currently have a progressive 5th so i haven;t mounted the el jefe to my v10 yet)
