Seems like a lot of sag for the rear. 5mm static (no rider), 20mm with rider is more like it. Spring might be ok; you need more preload.

I agree. Plusher ride more like 10mm no rider,25mm with rider. As a rule of thumb. If adjusted for 25mm sag with rider, you have less then 10mm static, you need a heavier spring. More than 10mm,you need a lighter spring.
