Does anyone have a yz426f control issue? I had this bike for a couple of years now, its a monster in power and torque. However I sometimes have hard time with controlling the bike.

I was wondering if anyone had made any mods to the bike which would allow me better control. My sag is set properly and I have the suspensions set to manufactuer at the moment. It has a twin air intake, fmf power bomb exhaust, hot cams stage 2 for power.

I know nothing for handle bars, would it be the bar, or the front suspensions or perhaps the "triple clams" that I keep hearing about. Basicly looking for easyer cornering, my weak spot. heh :banghead:

Put your nuts over the gas cap, weight on the outside peg and use the throttle. Don't know if it's the right way but i can run an 80 track in 2nd or 3rd gear like that with mine. Works in the desert too, just have to adjust front to back position for speed and control.

lol ok I'll give it a try, maybe not moving far enough up onto the fuel tank. I find the bike weight distrubution heavy on this one, unlike my 1997 rm 250.
