Your race(static)sag seems high. It should be 100-105. The spring needs more preload. The stock springs for the bike are actually probably on the stiff side for your weight. Are you sure the springs are stock.

Stock is 0.47 kg/mm up front 5.7 kg/mm rear. Ideally you would want around .44 kg/mm front 5.2 - 5.4 rear.

Most of the guys who have been successful with the '10-'13's have been running sag numbers in the 105-115 range.
