New fork spring rate recommendations

My 2003 SV1000N has ~52,000 miles. The fork springs are still within spec but since I'm running out of things to tweak I thought I might change them anyway.

According to Race-Tech the stock spring rate is 0.98 kg/mm
Race-Tech recommends a rate of 0.86 kg/mm and the closest available is 0.90 kg/mm.

I currently have the preload at the max with the stock springs. If I use the springs that they recommend won't I have too much sag?
