your not going to get a 265 lb., 450cc four stroke to turn on a dime. make a couple free changes to your set up before you spend the bucks. pull your forks up in your stock triple clamps to the second line on the tubes. also, add 3/16 to a 1/4 inch more pre-load to the rear end (less sag).

yes the offset clamps will help,i ran 23mm offset EMIG clamps on my 04 wr and on my 05 yz. the 04/05 yz clamps will work as long as you use your stem,one is longer than the other (can be pressed on/off at most any bike shop) the difference is amazing especially in the tight stuff. i know for 05 the wr frame dropped on the steering head about 1/2" and that was supposed to help turning because of the lower COG,like MTRA said,you may want to check your sag and run your fork tubes 5 mm up in the clamps first before spending all the $$.
