2011 650 rear shock question

So I am 220 lbs and ride mostly on the street. What is a good starting place for the spring rate and dampening on the rear shock?

Search out topun springs and buy the 7.4kg replacement spring for the stock shock.....you will be happy...I am. I too ride the street mostly and weigh the same. At a $100 or less depending on where you are...it's a steal of a deal!
