Thanks for the replies. My technique indeed is flawed since i'm so new I'm sure.
One thing i'm having a huge issue with is reading in the manual so confused i won't be able to fall asleep tonight:
"to reduce the difference, increase spring pre-load" page 49
So they say to adjust the ring in direction "A" (to the right).
Looking at my bike, this would move the ring UP, and thus would UNCOMPRESS the spring providing the spring more room to expand.
This would also seem to decrease spring preload no?
It also looks as if turning in direction "A" would lower the rear end of the bike which would INCREASE the sag difference.
So I got 3 contradictions here and i'm sure i'm just not getting it.... Can anyone explain it to me in a way I can understand? Maybe everything with bikes is backwards - starting with countersteering
