If he's looking to just put a heavier spring in there, the MAX you can find in QBP and most places is an 850 lb for a 1.5 stroke. If you want a heavier spring than that, you're going to have to get one directly from FOX. I wanted a 900, and couldn't get one. I ended up calling FOX, they had a 950 and a 1050. I went ahead and got both since I couldn't find them. The 850 provides a bit too much sag for my 235 lb self, and the 950, not quite enough, but I'm using that one. I don't know if I'll ever use the 1050, except maybe a XC race where the course if flat!
So, long story, but I would recommend he try an 850 if he's 225 lbs.
