quick steering

Ok so 12 versys, noticed my steering was sluggish. Tire pressures were about 18PSI. Aired up to 41 PSI and this thing will lean/turn if you think about turning. Let some air out of the front tire and it feels a lot better. Not sluggish or too quick- didnt check what the PSI it is now.

929cbr front end, lowers the bike approx 3". Lowered the rear to match. When the bike is on the kick stand the bottom of the bike is not level and the front of the frame is lower than the rear. Im not sure how the bike normally sits so pics or even measurements would be helpful.

My '15 650LT is 7.5" below the front of the header, 9.25" below the rear of the muffler, sidestand on a piece of 2 x 6.

(BTW - I have a 120/70 on the front, a 150/70 rear, and I run 36 psi F, 42 R.)
