depends on how big of jumps you are doing. im not sure if they make softer springs for the DJ series. for th Z1 series, they dont make softer springs, so i took out the right side spring and ran air, as marzocchi suggested. i like the feel of air on the right, because it is a very progressive spring which prevents bottoming. its plush through the initial stroke, but it ramps up near the top.
btw. i weigh 120#
