What is a good rate for front springs? I have seen .90 ,1.0 and 1.1 which should I use on a gl1800? Also any opinions on Race Tech brand?

don't know what the 'rate is' on my Traxxion springs, but they sure are solid...

definitely will not bottom out.

It all depends on how much you weigh, if you carry a passenger etc.
