Stock XRL sag setting

Does anyone know what the sag setting is for the stock setup? I am 5'11" 220.

Do I need to worry about setting up the spring preload?

In general, a good sag setting for any motorcycle is to set it at 1/3 of total travel.  That would be four inches on an XR650L.

Thanks

Love simple answers

Do I need to worry about setting up the spring preload?

I forgot to answer this one.

 

I can't think of any other way to set the sag than by adjusting spring preload.  On forks, you can use a spacer on the spring, but ultimately that is just setting preload on that spring when there isn't a regular preload adjustment.
