That bump stop is pretty thick, depending on its durometer (hardness). If it is pretty hard, it could be cut down thinner... The 940 lb/in stock spring is way too stiff to allow setting proper sag, and for sufficient compliance with 210 lb rider.
For solo riding 170 lbs fully geared, a 750 lb/in (13.4 kg/mm) spring would offer more than enough support, as many have opted for with their R1 and Elka shock... If you plan to do much 2-up with a 127 lb passenger and gear, 900 lb/in would work well, but ride would be harsh when unloaded.
