What do you mean you "dropped" the front end? You mean you slid the tubes up into the clamps?

I use 10 mm static sag front and rear. 25 mm rider sag front and rear for a total of 35 mm.

Front: 12 clicks compression, 9 clicks rebound.
Rear: 11 clicks compression, 10 clicks rebound.

I weigh 190, my measurements are for a S4RS with Ohlins suspension.

I slid my forks up into the clamps and it cornered well, but got unstable at highway speeds, especially in traffic, passing, and behind 18 wheelers, etc.

Yea that's what i mean, thanks for the tips.

What do you mean by static sag. don't you want the front lower then the rear?
Static sag is the amount of sag caused by the weight of the bike alone, rider sag is obviously the amount with the rider in their regular riding position.

A lot of people drop the front end so it will turn easier, but as you lower the front you also decrease rake making the bike unstable. You know, you can increase the rear height also.
