I currently have a set of Tag triple tree clamps mounted on my 04' yz 450f. There are 4 different positions you can mount the handlebar clamps in. Is mounting location just a preference or does it affect the handling/ set-up of the bike?? (i.e. quicker turning, better handling)

I currently have them mounted all the way forward but was wondering if I should move them back. I'm over 6ft tall.

Any advice would be great,
