I would be very carful about unloading your rear preload, another guy here last week did that very thing and got a high speed wobble and down. High speed on a tall bike and I would crank in a little more preload than your sag specs call for, if you want to lower it, put a lower link on, drops the seat a little and your suspension and settings stay the same.
