OK, now you made me get out my calculator and run some numbers. With a 27 degree head angle, decreasing the offset by 1mm will raise the head about 3mm, which, absent any other changes would increase the head angle (from vertical) roughly 0.05 degrees. Besides, increasing the head angle makes it more prone to push, not less. Yeah, that's what I'm getting at. When they're testing all these different offsets, to do a proper test, I think they should really be keeping the head angle the same by using one of those "angle thingy's" and sliding the forks through a bit. When changing to a different offset has anybody noticed an increased tendency of the bike to develop headshake? I would like to make my '06 a little more nimble (like my RM250) but not so much that I would be willing to develop headshake. I don't mind a little oversteer (prefer it to pushing) but I hate headshake! Yep, and I hate headshake too, I've tried sliding the forks up to the 5mm mark like everyone else seems to be doing, but I actually prefer to run my forks flush at the top, and I'm using a damper too! Man MXA really beats up on the 07 in this months edition...no triple clamp will help it apparently....lets all sell our yamis I'm beginning to think that the difference between the YZF450 and the CRF and RMZ may have something to do with the fork action and maybe even the shock action combined with it(you could argue that the YZ250 uses the same stuff, but then again it's also a lighter bike). Would it be possible to do a test by shoving a CRF's forks and wheel into stock YZ450F clamps??? I'd like to see it done, just to rule out the possibility. I'm not complaining, I'm happy with my bike the way it is, and would rather spend money on a model upgrade than triple clamps.
