08 WR 450 front end a little twitchy

Is the WR just very maneuverable and a little more to manage at the same time?

So, does it have a reputation for being twitchy? I mean, it turns really well I just have to stay on top of it. The sag may change all of that of course.

How does one go about adjusting sag on your front forks on the 08-09 WR 450's?
I dont see any preload adjustment? Do you have to open them up and use shims or what?
There is no preload adjustment on the front. Setting the sag out back will effectively give you the correct geometry along with sliding the forks up or down in the clamps a bit. My understanding is that you can preload the front springs with shims, but if you have the correct springs in there for your weight and riding style you should not need to do that. Check out the spring calculator on the Race Tech website first to see if you are in the ballpark with your current springs.
