I recently purchased a 01 YZ426F and unfortunately it didn't come with a Owners Manual. Until I get one I have a couple questions:

With the understanding the bike is stock, what steps should be taken when starting the bike cold and hot?

I need to adjust the sag in the rear shock (I need to lower the seat height a bit), how do I do this? The bike sits to high for me so I'm thinking I can raise the fork tubes a bit and adjust the rear shock. Has anyone done this with success?

Thanks for your help.
