Do I really need to get a special tool to adjust the spring rate on my read n250r? I feel it's a tad soft.

Can I have yours ? ;) where do I get one?

To be honest, the tool sucks, but a good one to have. It works, but it can be a PITA to use. The best thing to do is take the chain guard off to use it. Once you set the shock to where you want it, you should be done. Any setting higher than 3 gets pretty stiff for a light rider (under 150 lbs), if the weight is over 200 lbs. setting 4 or 5 is good. Max setting barely moves at all.

You can buy a whole kit or individual tools. Owner's Tools Kawasaki EX250-JBF Ninja 250R (Blue, Black) 2011 OEM Parts - Cheap Cycle Parts
My suggestion is to buy individual tools if you don't have a tool kit. They will be better quality and cheaper, but not as compact.

I'm 171 and still losing ... I'm in the process of getting a flat pack ... So would setting 4 be better?
