I just measured the rear sag per the manual and the difference is 5 inches not the recommended 3.5 to 4. I weigh 185 with full gear.
Question is, to decrease this difference would I loosen the adjuster to decrease pressure on the spring? Also any idea where to find a tape measure in mm. instead of inches?

Dougie I will be following your progress on here with the suspension deal, I too am getting interested in this.

Thanks all,

You want to turn the collar to push up against the spring, NOT away from the spring. That would be counter-clockwise if viewed from above.
To convert inches to metric, there are 2.54cm (25.4mm)per inch. Multiply your inches by 25.4(mm) to get your answer.
