What aspects of suspension setup affect the front wheel tendency to turn into a turn when the tire starts to slide. The same tendency is apparent when I get into a rut or on a side hill. If the front wheel slips slightly, it turns very quickly into the rut or uphill, the turning increases the problem of the slide.
What is the best way to combat this turn?
Will a steering stabilizer help?

Thanks,

Jerry

Jerry,
I would consider rasing the tubes in the clamps. This tightens up the turning radius. I would run less fork compression as this creates more traction, and radius. I would add rebound, as it ""

Consider less rider sag and finally less preload. This should help.
