Yes, the new shock should solve this issue :)
Drop it about 5 mm at a time and test ride. There are markings on the fork tube. You'll be surprised how much a difference 5mm can make.

Through a few years of riding track days, reading online, and learning I put together some tips on tuning in suspension. Give it a read but YMMV. This was put together for my track bike but the general principals still apply. Works for me, may not for you. Note: the first part on reading tires is for street bikes. The second part on handling method applies more to DS bikes and tires Suspension Tuning Tips
