I'm just about to cut my chain to length but I was thinking of taking one more link out than normal and reducing my wheelbase. I know some people who run their wheelbase as short as possible to get there bikes turning better, so was wondering what other people out there have tried?

50-75% back in the slot. Makes the front heavier than a forward position and helps the bike push less.

I also run the axle to the rear of the adjustment slot. Keeps the front end down. RM 250 and YZF426
