Any thoughts on running the rear wheel closer too or further from the end of it's adjustment? Thinking that dropping a chain link will sharpen my turn in without decreasing stabillity like dropping the forks.

Doesnt dropping the forks through the clamps increase stability? I mean say 10mm of fork tube showing through the top triple clamp will be less stable at speed than the cap flush with the triple clamp? :think

I added 2 teeth to the rear sprocket without adding links to the chain. This effectively moves the axle forward by 1 chain link. I like the way the YZ250F handles/turns with this configuration. I haven't experience any ill effects such as headshake from doing this. I still run the forks 5mm over the TC. I ride strictly motocross, on medium speed tracks, mostly intermediate soil, some hardpack, some sand.
