Many of us had no choice, before the wr400 there was of course the Xr600, I only keep it for a buddy bike and dual sport, so dont worry I havent gone to the other side. BUT can anyone tell me how high to run the forks in the clamps. I have it set at 5mm and it still turns horribly, front end doesnt feel planted, wants to wash out. I have the SRC fork brace, and their instructions cautioned about bottoming to hard and pushing the fork brace into the wheel and causing catastrophic injuries to your face. And therefore not to put the fork up any higher than the five mils, and yes I have cut out the sides on the front fender. Thank you.
