I found the spring rate here it is if anybody is interested.
Hyperstrada spring is progressive. It starts at 85 newtons per mm and ends at 140 newtons per mm.

Why would you need a stronger spring?

I wish I had a stiffer spring. It is very mushy in the beginning...

I don't think you need a stiffer spring. A good adjustment of the shock give you the same result! Or you are really heavy, i'm talking about 200kg

I am referring to the front springs, not the rear shock. My bad.

I raised the fork oil level by 45 cc & added 1/2 inch to reload & changed to 20 wt oil. right leg only. It did help. I like to ride it like a S/M and chase the sport bikes

Ahh Springs ok, Yes thats always a problem with most of the Ducati! At the moment i wait for wilbers to come out with Springs for the Hyperstrada they are really good!
For the Guys in Europa You can make a appointment with wilbers and they do everything for you the price is good!
