Either way it's good to try to understand what it's changing.
So if I lower the front, it makes the steering more sensitive?
It makes the bike turn sharper and requires less lean angle.
You would have needed to adjust your sag and settings afterwards all the way around the bike as well. That much of a rake/forward pitch transfers much more weight vs the correct ride height.
Low in the front is nice on the street sometimes. I had my 02 like 5mm too low in the front and loved it till I got to the track with it.
Raising the front up will make the bike run wider on the exits of turns when you're on the gas the front decompresses much more and you allow it to extend to a taller ride height and the bike goes wider and turns less sharp, and requires more lean angle.
Twitchiness, constant bar input, and things like that are a tell tale sign of a low front end whether it be sag or ride height.
