2015 Yamaha YZ40F Turning issue.

i cannot sit up on the gas tank taking a root around the corner. the front tire drives like a knive. what is the stock offset for the triple clamp? and any suggestions on what aftermarket triple clamp to buy?

its a 2015 yamaha yz450f

What's you weight, spring rates, sag, tire pressure, fork height?

Any suspension work done?

Is this entering the corner? Mid? Exit?

On the throttle? Off?

I highly doubt you need a different triple clamp offset.  There is a LOT to be accomplished with fork height, sag, springrates, and rear axle position before even considering triples.

when i enter sharp inside root and mid. the front end bites wile in a normal corner position of sitting up on the tank. i have to slide into the middle of the seat in order for it to track around the root

6'5 200lbs.

would a lower link for the rear end help?

off throttle and bites like a knife as i go to hit the throttle

Just run more sag to start with. 110-112mm isn't unreasonable. I found both ends to be a little busy with 100mm sag.

what about 105mm i been hearing that alot on youtube vids? so your saying 100mm might be good to go with?

Are you saying "route", "root", or "rut"?

No, he's saying that's not enough.  try something in the 108-114 range to make the head angle less steep. 
 
How much do you weigh?
