These are VERY aggressive settings. Running this low of sag, you might have actually topped out the front when it unloaded, which very well could have caused it to go.

I've worked with Dave Moss as well as several other top suspension tuners, and would recommend going much lower. Start with 35mm front and 30mm rear. Set the front fork height to stock, and the rear to stock height (you'll have to calculate what that is with different rear links etc). and go from there.

This way you have a solid baseline. Then as you're tuning, make only ONE change at a time, and record what you feel.

"It was the kind of situation that regularly sees many of the people who masquerade as motorcyclists and ride every third Sunday up their favourite local road (if it's sunny) to sit at a cafe and make broom broom noises with other pretend-motorcyclist-idiots, crash their brains out."

As above, those are really stiff settings. Are you talking about sag with or without rider?
