Preload and sag are the same thing.
You can't adjust front sag/preload without spacers or a spring swap.

I was referring to compression and rebound settings in the forks.......bottom line, set the rear sag first then screw around with the clickers for rear shock/forks......

I tried messaging the uploader, his description says it's made for the 250r/x models, not the F?


edit: the uploader messaged me back, he doesn't speak english very well but he gave me their website here

The side seat bolts look like an F, where the side panel is from too. Looks like he merged the two.

Am I the only one that thinks the WRR/X isn't underpowered ? I keep reading everywhere that it is but for me it has plenty of power. I've owned both the WRR and WRX, left them stock and only ever needed more power in sand or above 115km/h. Used to have an RM250, would never ever go back to it even if it does have 45hp at 100kg, I much prefer the WR.

Headlight adjustment

Anybody adjust their headlight? I looked in the owners manual and there was nothing listed.
I thought I'd ask before taking the unit off (lazy). If I jab the front brake the lighting positions to the correct angle.
Hi beam is useless because it's all in the trees. It must be blinding traffic as it is.

There are two headlamp adjustment screws that adjust the beam vertically. They are on both sides of the headlamp mask. Clockwise raises the beam.

First check that it is in the plastic piece correctly. Mine was pointing really high, it was because the top mount of the headlight is just a piece of plastic clipping into the headlight shroud. It got pushed back at the top and was pointing up. They are made to pop out of that mount to hopefully not break in an impact.

Remove the screws listed here as number 19. Then check that part 14 is firmly seated into the back of the headlight cowling. Part #15 is the headlight adjustment screws.
