On my gen 1 bike, I have the forks pushed through (8mm gold showing from memory) and have added 3mm shim above the stock rear shock shim. I also run 180/60 rear tyre.
I had a friend suggest the bike was too nose down, so I set forks back to stock position (4mm gold showing??) and removed the extra shock shim. After that, the bike felt vague and pushed wide in corners and I could feel it sliding the front.
Needless to say, I went back to the above set up.
I also have my clip-ons dropped down with a 6mm gap between the top triple and the clipon bracket.
This on a gen 1 bike, so geometry is different, but that was my experience.
