I recently was given a 2003 YZ450. The bike is in like new condition. This is my first time owning a 4-stroke. I took it out to the track and really liked the power, but, that son of a gun pushes thru the corners rather than turning thru like a two-stroke.
I have worked with the suspension, new tire and sliding the forks up and down trying to find a happy medium. Too no avail. Does anyone have any suggestions or cures to at least get me going in the right direction for a cure?

Do you have the right springs in there for your weight along with the sag set correctly?
