Do I need a ring adjuster tool to lossen the ring? It look like I can just get a long punch in there to lossen the top one with a few good hits. Then adjust the bottom, then tighten the top and give it a few good hits again this a punch to secure it.
Or should I go out a buy a ring adjuster? How much are they? Seems silly for a one time deal. Correct me if I wrong.

The sag is normally set in the range 90-100 mm depending on your personal preferance. If you can't reach the sag you want with the stock spring then you will need to get a heavier sping. At you weight you should be able to get there, but you don't want to compress the spring past about 1/4 it original legnth. If you find yourself half way through the threads on the shock body, you sould consider a heavier spring.

proper tools but access was a problem,
so I started with the punch method.
After a few revolutions (that's about
100 hits with a punch!), I removed the
air filter, air box to carb manifold and
adjusted it with the spanner through
the airbox. So much easier--worth the
time to take apart the airbox if you
need to do a lot of adjustment.

For those of you who are vertically challenged and weigh about 180-190 fully loaded, were you able to set the bike up with proper sag and still reach the ground. If not what kind of changes did you have to make. I am trying to maximize my available time and not have to do this more than once. I also would like to know if I need to save up some $$$ for other parts.
