How do you get a Yamaha, Suzuki, or pre 2008 Honda to steer more quickly? You have a few options, 1) get more of your body weight on the front end when cornering, 2) raise your fork tubes in your triple clamps a few inches (bad idea) or 3) call RG3 and order a set of their 22mm offset hard anodized, aluminum triple clamps. Going from an offset of 25mm to 22mm will make you feel like Nick Wey faster than you can learn a new track. Well maybe not, but your bike will at least steer as fast as his.

RG3 got started back in 1998 in a small shop in Anaheim, CA. Founded by Rob Henricksen in an effort to allow racers to go fast through terrain that normally slowed them down and bring the art and science of off-road motorcycle racing suspension to a whole new level. Today they offer a wide variety of suspension parts and services including rebuilding and custom revalving.

Here's a little info on steering geometry:

Motorcycle geometry is the collection of four key measurements that define a particular bike configuration. These are the wheelbase, steering axis angle, fork offset, and trail. A considered balance of these has gone into the design of your bike and a change to any one will have a dramatic impact on how it handles. Wheelbase is the horizontal distance between the front and rear wheels where they touch the ground. The steering axis angle is the angle of the steering tube
