Hi there, Need some input from suspenders experts please.

Just about to pick up the new to me Cali and bought a cate motorcycle rear rack from the bay.

I know I’m going to be right on the axle limit and handling will be effected, possible tailgate won’t open etc, just trying to find some wisdom on the rear springs and possible options. First some details.

Model - 2021 California Coast.
Additional Cate rear motorcycle rack 20-30kg
Enduro motorcycle 140kg with fuel.
Inside will be motorcycle kit about another 50-100kg.
+ usual things that will live inside.
Standard 16” wheels and tyres.
The rack and Motorbike will not always be on the back when out with kids camping etc or the rack there with a cycles/ storage box.

To balance I will move the rear seat as far as possible forward and distribute internal weight evenly if not biased to front.

In the 2021 coast are they t28, 30 or 32 springs?

Given the above what should I look to do for rear springs so the arse doesn’t ground out on any bump. Or would stock suspension be enough or upgrade to t32 springs if not already in.

Thanks a lot.
