Sometimes if you get a lot of squat when applying power you can suffer from lack of rebound damping making the back of the bike stand up again and the rear gets light, add more rebound.

OR

Sometimes you dont get enough squat and the bike will bounce the tire up the track never making good traction , reduce compression.

Normally to get more grip you need to run a soft spring setup but this also will suck up some power as you are not only applying it to forward motion but also downward, the best spring you have is in the sidewalls of the rear tire though and playing with tire pressures is probably the best solution , you have a multitude of choices for getting grip.

Try going full stiff on everything on the rear and wind up the spring, this will let the tire do the work, then play with pressures, if that doesnt help then start to go softer on the rear compression damping.

How heavy are you ?

1st10 , if you have wound down the spring perch then try using stock settings
to start with 1.3/4 turns out for rebound (bottom adjuster) and 3 turns out for compression (top adjuster) , this should be a good baseline as the settings are for 150lb rider, so you will be soft to start.
Also , now your sag is lower it should transfer a little more weight to the rear of the bike as the rake has changed.Start working up the scale with adding one sweep of bump(compression) to 2 sweeps of rebound and see how that goes.

One more thing that has just struck me, it has happened a couple of times to me in the past(a long time ago), my turbo bike would spin the wheel inside the tire , can you feel the bike stepping out or does it feel a little like clutch slip ??
