Clickers won't raise the bike

if it has a lowering link you would need to change it

170cm so around 5.6ft

Are you flat on your feet 

does the shock bottom out 

of so it probably has a lowering link

Nah it won't stiffening it will only make it harder stiffening won't raise it.

it most likley has a lowering link if your 5.6ft and flat on your feet.

If the bike has it's original shock spring, with you weighing 85kg (187 lbs) it is too soft.

No matter how much you tighten up the preload to raise the rear, it will ride low and soft.

 

Bike manufacturers set up most 125's for a rider in the 140-150lbs range. (66kg), meaning you likely need a stiffer spring.

It's also a 16 year old bike, when has the shock's nitrogen bladder last been serviced / re-charged ?
