I just installed my new 97mm. dog bones that I got from linjy. And I replaced the 5w. rust water in the forks with some 20w. WOW HOLY SH*T. It made a world of difference. Now I can hardly keep the front tire down and in the corners all you have to do is have a slight thought of turning and the bike does the rest.

BTW Thank you all for the info on here
Can't wait for my new tires now!!!

Why can't you keep the front tire down?
I guess the 97MM are shorter, making the bike sit higher, thus, more prone to wheelies

How much did the new dogbones raise the back up?

actually lowered therefore raising the front about 1/8in.

And raising both the nose and tail made the handling snappier? I would have thought that raising the front would counteract the effect of raising the tail as far as handling is concerned.
