60 seems a little heavy to me, but only your "SAG" knows for sure
check out the link, http://www.harrymoto.com/MX/RaceSag/...r_race_sag.htm
i also agree with others on this site that our bike work better with < 10mm preload and around 120mm SAG on the rear.

I'm running 5.7 and I'm near 140 kg. 6.0 is way too stiff for you. I would guess you need closer to 5.3 or 5.4

Maybe I'm confused, what comes standard? Isn't it 5.1 or 5.2?

i agee with stainless, 5.2 was stock on my bike. i now run a 5.4 my weight is 200 lbs / 91kg. With such a heavy shock spring i would be concerned with the weight of the fork springs also. the bike will handle like crap if the balance is not correct front to rear.

I'm the same weight. I run 5.7 on my 2 stroke and a 6.0 on the 4 stroke. I'd say the 5.7 is slightly too light so I would guess a 6.0 could be made to work ok on the 2 stroke but you may be at the minimum limit of the compression clicker. I'm riding woods so if you are riding more open stuff or MX 6 would work well I would expect. Do your forks match? They would need to be 0.48 to 0.5.

I have Marzocchi forks which may not have the same adjustment range. I can tell you I have very little compression damping on the rear Ohlins. Only 1 click.
