I might also add I notice it more under acceleration. When I accelerate rather hard for a short period it feels like its probably at its worst. This is almost making me regret buying a ktm. Haha
I just did the fork seals, and put the fork flush with the top of the clamp. Where should it be?

part of what makes the pre 2008 200's work so well in the woods is what causes the headshake, a steering damper lets you keep that handling and fixes the headshake
And what exactly is that? Please enlighten me.
I ride mostly farmers fields but have a fishing trip up in the woods where i'll get to try it out. I was surprised when it started bucking at me because it has a reputation for handling like a champ.
So by the sounds of things I need to set the sag, then if its still shaking, get a steering damper. Was hoping it wouldn't come to that. Maybe I'll sell it for a for stroke. Anybody wanna trade for a wr 450? Haha!
Just re reading this. Wouldn't it start shaking going over rocks and stumps too? That would be freaky if I had nowhere to go but trees...
