can someone please give me an answer really quick. Thanks

which would be better for me in the woods. Im looking at two pairs of forks. Both are 97's. One is from a 250 the other is from a 125. According to race tech for the kx250 the stock spring rate is .400 they suggest for a person of 144 me with the extra kdx weight to have springs with a rate of .401. So im pretty close. Also the stock 125 forks have a spring rate of .380. Racetech says for a 144 pound person to have .391. So i am a little over but which would be better for me. To be over or a bit under. They reccomend this rate for enduro/desert/trails. Please help. Im gonna offer the guy some money before they are bidded on. Which do you think would be better for me??
