compress it more, therefore making it more stiff?

Nice XT! IS there an oil temp gauge in the bike display?

If I want to add one, do I get the 10mm, 12mm, or 14mm "spark plug" ring and where is the best place to

install it in the oil system?

The XT has a little bit of rear adjustability. The "sag" can be adjusted via the two rings on top of the rear shock.
You could try that as well. Just my $.02.
