Hello - looking at replacing my fork springs on my 02 650S. My complaint with the current springs is they feel unstable while cornering, I get kind of a slow weave/stray.

I'm unsure of the current spring weight, they were replaced by PO.

Mostly commute, occasionally ride twisties.

What weight springs should I go with?

0.90s and 20w fork oil. Although you should pull your old ones out first and see what they are. It's possible that you just need to change your fork oil, or you may have some other issue causing the problem.

Im about #215 in full gear and I ran .90 and 15 weight in my stock shocks. It was a major improvement. Im a reasonably aggressive rider and this was pretty ok for me. Also, you should get a 636 rear shock. It will make the bike fell much more stable and planted but not harsh.
