RB Good job on the bearing race tool.
Paul W. What you have is no compresion dampening, the centrifical force of the turn compresses the rear suspention giving you the ugly combo of too much trail (in your steering geometry) and changing trail as the rear end moves up & down. If you can't spring for the Ohlins buy a used set of the "Sport Shocks from someone here that has upgraded. Do you have a GS Link? That reduces the steering geometrys "trail" and would also help.
