I have an 08wr450. Suspension has been revalved and resprung for my weight. My friend says that raising the forks in the clamps will make it turn better. Is this true?
I know the geometry between the 06 and 08 is slightly different but before I had Factory Connection rework my forks I raised the forks 6mm which did help my bike turn a bit better. Since the FC magic I have the forks raised only 1mm to 2mm.
So yes it is true but there is a down side as well. Raising the forks will increase the likelihood of head shake at speed.

Now doing tight woods stuff I turn so tight that I can almost see myself in front of me. I'm not doing 70MPH stuff either so higher speed stability isn't an issue (I'm geared at 14/52 anyway which I love).
