if it's squatting then stepping out its more like the preload isn't set to your weight and the compression ( slow) is too soft.
acceleration puts slow presure on the shock and a bump fast compression
but the squat decreaces the swingarm angle and take the drive off the road and creats wheel spin or wheel stand depending on traction available
straight line it will wheel stand. and leaned over it will spin causeing you bike to step out.
10mm of bike sag and another 15 to 20 rider sag Max. then adjust the clickers to get the right comp and rebound. if your on a stock 2011-2012 shock the rebound and compression for anything that will work are allmost maxed out. well mine are. and i weight 4/5ths of fuk all.
just noticed you are on a 08 . and you look a bigger dude.
still say set sag first to fix problem
the shop can set the spring and valveing for your weight but not the preload unless they did with you in the shop.
