finally getting some hours on and getting comfortable on the 07' I bought new a month or so ago...rode a GOOD corner track the last 2 days...with a new quality front tire, and carmichael pro-tapers which have minimal pullback and really get me up on the seat when setting up for corners...the bike handles FINE with NO push...compared it back to back with an 07'crf250 and an 07'kxf250...don't get me wrong those bikes would carve an inside line EASIER than the yzf, however after hearing all the "push" hype, i'm happy to report for ME anyway it was simply a matter of SETUP.

What is your track terrain conditions? I'm considering the Dunlop 952 for the front of my 07. It worked great on an 05 CRF450X, front and rear.
