I know others have discussed this, but I couldnt find the thread to add to it. But for me, I fixed any turning issues I had with my 08 yz450 by putting the Renthal twin wall Windham bend. I cannot believe how much better I can turn from something as simple as a bar swap. It took me most of the day to get used to standing up with them but the corners was the instant I hit the track. Not to crazy about the pillow top grips I tried, but I was digging them as the day wore on. Just for reference I am 5'9 and the bars are PERFECT. Get yourself some! On another note, I tried a maxis IT tire, the intermediate compound, mixed feelings about that tire, hooks up great where it was dry, or tacky, but totally sucked anywhere it was slippery or too muddy. I think the Dunlop 952 is a better tire for tracks with transitioning conditions. I will probably go back to the 952 after I wear this tire down. Not sure if its the new set up with the bars or the new rear maxis but my front 952 tire kept wanting to push out today, its never given me any of those problems before.....need to find out whats causing it.
