2017 CRF450R shock revalve thoughts?

Recommended Posts

I have a 2017 CRF450R. I'm currently running
5.4 N/mm spring (stock that came with the bike)
3-5/8 out on High Speed Compression
14 out on Low Speed Compression
6-7 out on Rebound

I weight 195lbs
Sag: Race - 106, static - 34.
MX track only

With the current shock spring, I have to put a lot of pre-load on it and it is making the bike height pretty tall for me. I wanted to try going one rate higher on the spring. For one reason to see if I can get more of a plush ride at the MX track but the real reason is I can barely hold the bike up, on tippy toes, during race starts (the only time the height issue really bothers me).

I'm already pretty tight on the rebound at only 6 clicks out and not much room to go out any farther on compression.

Given that the shims in the valve stack are (stock):

Comp:
30.30x6
23.3
24.25
25.25
26.25
28.25
30.25
32.25
34.25
36.25
38.25
40.25
42.25
44.25
22.1
36.15
44.20x9
44.25x2

Reb:
27.3
28.3
30.3
32.3
34.3
36.3
38.3
40.3
25.1
40.15x2
40.20x4

Would it be a good idea to re-valve so that I can move the rebound clicker out a bit and move the high speed compression in a bit? If so, is there something I can move around with the existing shims (this may be a really dumb question from the noob that I am)? Otherwise any recommendations on changing the valve stack from what it is?

Remove the 45.25s and move the 40.25 into the rebound
