So when I got my bike I knew the rear sag was out of wack. This weekend I finally decided I needed to fix this. After searching, a lot, I came up with many answers. Some say 100mm of laden sag others say as little as 35mm. Most saying to set the laden sag and let the static sag fall where is may.

The PO. had the rear sag set at ~150, I have to wonder if this was a way to cheaply lower the bike. Anyway, can anyone give some input on what they run and why? I currently set it to about 80ish mm laden /30mm static (I'm about 170~175lbs with gear). The bike felt less sluggish and slightly more playful. Should I leave it there or crank in a little more preload. Any input would be useful.

TIA

The rear sag that you've set is pretty much mint for street or paved circuit use.
I found this video helpful.
