For your suspension. In the manual is the stock settings on the clickers. The settings are out from full in. Turn them in till they stop clicking but don't over tighten them. Then set them to your stock settings for compression (Bottom) and rebound (Top). Then bleed the air off. You do that by loosening the screws on top of the fork legs that are not in the center of the top cap. Now you can see where you are. I would bet you need to go a little softer on your compression, that would be more clicks out on the bottom.
If you start playing with it and it gets wierd go back to your stock settings. I keep a log of all my changes and what I think, good and bad. Then if I find something I like or don't for certian conditions I can go back to those settings without guessing.
One other thing that really factors in to handling is the rear shock sag. The instructions for setting that are in your manual too. I would make sure that you have that set correctly also.

Bleed the forks from air.
Had the same problem and going out (decrease) on the rebound helped me.
