What's you weight, spring rates, sag, tire pressure, fork height?

Any suspension work done?

Is this entering the corner? Mid? Exit?

On the throttle? Off?

I highly doubt you need a different triple clamp offset.  There is a LOT to be accomplished with fork height, sag, springrates, and rear axle position before even considering triples.

Just run more sag to start with. 110-112mm isn't unreasonable. I found both ends to be a little busy with 100mm sag.

Are you saying "route", "root", or "rut"?

No, he's saying that's not enough.  try something in the 108-114 range to make the head angle less steep. 
 
How much do you weigh?
