I have a problem with bad front end push,I have the IMS tank/YZ seat.Any suggestions?[/QUOTE]
Are you running the stock tire (Dunlop 739)? If so, throw it away! My WR turns mucho better with a Dunlop 756 up front.

If I can tell the difference between the 756 & 739 it must be junk for the terrain I ride.

If you haven't done so already, set the sag on the shock. As delivered it is too soft for most people. If you are up around 200 lbs or more, you will find that a 5.8 or 6.0 shock spring works better (5.4 is stock).
When I got my WR426, I kept feeling like I was chasing the front end until I slid the forks up 8mm in the clamps. Based on my weight/riding style, this setup works for me.
I prefer the D755 over the D756 for the mud, woods, and desert riding I do because the side knobs don't break off as quickly in the rocks. I took off the D739 before I rode it and put it on my WR400 and sold it.
Hope this helps.

A 200 lb rider running a stock shock spring, set as delivered by most dealers, will have WAY TOO MUCH sag, causing the bike to push like an old wheelbarrow with a flat tire in corners.
