Suspension tips for 250+ lbs. riders

So I have a 2017 H2 and my weight fluctuates between 280-300 lbs. I’m wondering if anyone had any tips for getting my sag dialed in, I’m not sure where to get a stronger rear spring or if I can play with the settings. I just ride on the street on this bike, but participate in “aggressive negotiations”. Any advice would be appreciated, thanks!

I've not looked for this information before but in the Rider's Manual for my 2015 H2 on page 12 under "Loading and Accessories Information" it says the maximum load should not exceed 105 kg or 231 lbs.

If that is correct then at 280-300 lbs Kawasaki are saying you are too heavy for their bike.

I'm not saying don't ride it but it might be worth checking this with your dealer. Let us know what they say because if correct it means that anyone over sixteen and a half stones is too heavy for the H2 !!!
