you can always get a cheap fix by raising your fork tubes in the clamps by 5, 10 or 15mm... but that also shortens your wheelbase and lowers the front end... not good at high speed...

i would recommend you go over to the KTM side and thtere is a jetting Q there that clark mason answered. he's a veteran from this side but hardly posts at all nowadays.
he did a lot of the earlier mods. give him a personal message as he did hundreds of miles with short-offset triple clamps (SOT's).
they did improve the steering but you have to decide if they're worth the extra money.
i had my handlebars on 10mm spacers and then dropped the forks through 13mm and eventually 18mm.
having a top-notch front tyre helps.
but as you can see from my signature, in the end after hundreds of £££££ of mods i still had the one thing i couldn't change; a heavy bike.
