Have I adjusted my Whammy correct?

Hey Jem folks. Can anyone take a look at my two pictures and tell me what you think. I'm a bit in doubt if the whammy is going too much down to the right after I have changed strings from 9 to 10. If it is what is the solution?

Is the little black dot, that you can see on the picture made to adjust so you can be sure, that the whammy is parallel with how it should be?

As you can see, I have been so naughty and write the links with some space in between, and that helped.

6fingers, do you mean that I should go google and You Tube my questions?? Well, I already tried.

Re: Have I adjusted my Whammy correct?

The bridge looks like a lo pro edge. It should be sitting flatter. Try inc the tension on the spring claw and reduce tension on the neck

Yes, it’s a lo pro edge. The guitar is a UV777P
Sorry my bad English but what do you mean with inc?
Do you think the whammy bar is turning to much down to the right or is it normal?
(I’m an old Les Paul guy who needs to know a lot better)

The angle looks correct..........you may have the height set a bit high, but the angle looks right on the money.
