I had the same problem on my 13 r1. Turn 11 for example at Laguna. The bike would not turn unless I was off the brakes. I went and told Dave moss he added two clicks of compression and fixed her right up. It was amazing.

I should add I had 30mm Cartridges in the forks and a ttx Rear but the change was huge. I could brake now to the apex of the corner and not have to brake straight up and down then release and then turn in.

He had explained to me at the time why the change did what it did but That was 5 years ago now and I didnít fully understand then and donít really know now. Lol

Damn. Was hoping to learn something. Oh wells

The only time Iíve felt that drastic a change from only a compression damping change was when I accidentally left the setting at full soft after pulling the fork apart. And the change I needed def wasnít 2 clicks

Why Ohlins VS GP Suspension? I'm pretty biased, but GP Suspension comes with manufacture support, especially trackside.

OP: What's your fluid level in the forks? Springs at 1.0 seem too heavy as does the rear spring. Bike sounds like a board. Aim to use the lightest springs you can get away with.

Given the problems you've got, I'd suggest sending your forks in for a service and making sure everything is Kosher. I can't tell the times I had incorrect work in the front end or shock early on it my racing endeavors and didn't know that was the cause of much of my grief.

I'd encourage you to send them in the us at GP Suspension...our tech(s) are excellent and will help you with setup issues long after you get your forks back. Shoot me a PM and I'll get a discount code for the service. I'm interested to see what's going on in the front end....
