Is there a progressive throttle kit available that will help me control it in the hard stuff or should i just get better at riding?
What kind of improvements can i expect from the Yamalink?
Can I or do I want to add flywheel weight?
Any other tips would be great. I'll ride again this weekend and report back.

I'm 5'8" and also have trouble touching ground when I have my sag set for my weight. I hardly touch ground though.
Throttle control, and confidence from more seat time will help. Drop your gearing so you can carry more RPM's at slower speeds. The yamalink should help on your standover height, and ground contact. You should also look into getting a ReKluse auto clutch. Check into getting your suspension done. DaveJ at SPI can really help, and the suspension work can smooth your ride.
I also see a steering stabilizer in your future.

my 06 was still factory geard 14 on front, i swapped to a 13 and bumped the idle up just a tad, also you have to ride it a little more aggressive than you would think..
I am short too..5'6" and touching ground is always a struggle for me.. no link on mine yet
the only fww i found was 2 oz, i dont think that would make much difference..
did the smart performance suspension on mine from davej......OMG....it is a complete diff bike...
what rear spring are you putting on it ?
