Higher psi isn't necessarily better. Go too high and you'll get cold tear. Do you know how much psi was increasing from cold to hot? Or even better, do you know the carcass' temperatures?
My guess is your pressure is too high, and you also have too much rebound damping. Back off rebound a couple clicks at a time, and try lowering pressure to the middle of the range.
I don't think geometry is an issue here because you may have raised the rear by 3mm, but you also dropped the forks and you're only running a 180/55. Is the bike running wide on exits?
