Either I'm too fat or the springs are too weak

First off I am really liking this bike. I reved her to 8 grand today, once, but she is smooth as glass. I did 180 miles today and while the seat's less that great it's no where near as bad as the KLR seat was. And with the Bags on I can now carry a few things, a little cooler in one bag with water is nice to have along.

I checked my milage and I'm at 52 mpg.

I add a turn of preload to the forks and another click on the rear. The front forks now track better and the rear was maybe a bit to stiff but the handling was super tight! I took one click away on the rear and things are a good trade off between ride and handling. BUT were can I find a replacement rear spring? I have the preloader at the next to highest setting and if I load up for a trip or a passenger I'll have nothing left

Or was that look THEN leap?
