how do i raise my rear shock?

My kx 125 sits like really low to where when i sit on it the back fender almost touches the wheel and im flat footed(im 5"10). i just replaced the shock as well, it is used. i forget if you turn those two nut things on it to tighten or loosen. 

you need a heavier spring. how much do you weigh?

 

 you should only have about 4 inches of sag.

i weigh about 170-180lb. i sat on other 125s before and they hardly even sag when i sit on them and they sit really high too. i compared mine to my freinds cr 80 and its about the same height.  :facepalm:

well for a stock 125 spring your 30 lbs too heavy. go here http://www.racetech.com/ , click spring rate search on the left. fill out your info. then at the next page twards the top you will find a spring rate calculator.
