Got a new YT Capra 27 CF Pro, and after the first ride felt as if a coil shock could benefit me. Been asking everywhere for advice, but the best advice will probably come from you. I know that the Capra has a pretty progressive leverage ratio, but good in theory is not always good in practice. What are some of your experiences with coil shocks on 27 capras? What Spring weight would you recommend me?

Rider weight with gear 190lbs±3lbs/86kg±1kg

Current stroke length:70mm

Current shock: rockshox super deluxe ultimate, 0 volume spacers, 75 psi

I’d start with a 500 lb spring and see how that works. You may find a 475lb spring perfect or 450lb spring good if you like your shock a bit plush.

All YT bikes use the same progressive suspension model so a coil on your Capra would be fitting. Not only that but YT has released versions of the Capra with a coil shock if that further supports the answer to your question.
