My front wheel tries to slide out on corners. Any suggestions on triple clamps or adjustments?

Get the right front tire and try pulling the forks up in the clamps 5-7mm. Be careful of increasing the rebound damping, as it can increase the mid stroke compression harshness in the single chamber KYB forks. Offset clamps will make it easier to turn in, but won't really deal with the push issue in any meaningful way.

Gray, a couple of questions:
- I've never heard anyone mention how big an effect the Yamaha footpeg mod is on turning.
- I've been using a D 756 front, I thought it was great until I had a bad spill recently. I'm not sure if it was the front tire washing out or not. But reading all the tire posts recently I plan on changing. What is your recomendation for medium to hard pack MX?

I like the Dunlop 745 for that. The new Bridgestone 403 looks like it would be worth a try, too.
