07 YZ250F suspension question?

Recommended Posts

I have been experimenting with my YZ on the trails. Does pretty good really for an MX bike. It does however have a bit of a nervous feeling when the trail gets a little wet and rutted. What would you guys suggest I try to calm this nervous darting feeling. Seems like it likes to shoot away sometimes.

In addition to bike setup (sag and settings) and tires, it could also be rider input. I get nervous and stiff when the rain and ruts and mud and rocks come out, and that makes me not flow with the bike and maybe even go too far forward on the seat. This in turn steepens the head angle and causes headshake. Or if I'm too "scared" to move off the rear of the bike the front wheel can't bite and that will cause the loss of traction and turning and maybe even some deflection on the forks.

New front MX 32 pirelli, rear is a 756 in great shape. Weight is 170 with gear. The nervous rider could be the culprit! The sag is set at 4 inches, I have adjusted the clickers to what feels best.
