spring rate?

hi guys
I need to get a new spring for my klr 600 and have found a company that can supply a spring but I don't know what the lbs/ins or Nm/mm rate is how do I work it out or do you know what the standard spring is
do you know what the free length is and internal diameter is so I don't have to take the spring off till the new one arrives
thanks karl

Maybe you've checked this out already with negative results, but . . . will a Generation1 KLR650 spring not fit?

If the KLR650 spring is the right size, whatever its rate, I imagine the correspondence with the KLR600 spring will be "close enough."

KLR600 springs no longer cataloged by Kawasaki? If that's the case, have you contacted "dismantlers" (motorcycle junk yards)?
