I think I'm still putting too much weight on the clipons during braking.
The weight will always go forward under braking, in this regard it doesn't matter how tense your arms are on the bars. The reason you want to relax is that tense arms feed into the steering, ie the bike wants to do something but you're not letting it, eventually it will bite.

It won't help you with bottoming, you're just heavy If you've got money to burn spend it on a properly sprung and revalved suspension. Otherwise, bump up the preload and damping and take baby steps on the track.

I would recommend getting some Stomp Grips as they will help you keep weight off of your clips on as you will not be sliding up on to the tank.
