bring the fork tubes up 10mm above the triple use a mic to make sure both are at 10mm this will allow you to turn in faster. and move the clip ons below the top triple.

Put everything to stock settings.

Properly set sag.

Ride the thing.

If it wants to push comeing out of corners, raise the rear a bit, until the feeling goes away

If it's hard to initiate turn in, you might want to drop the forks _a little bit_ in the tripples. Try 2mm at a time. If the front starts to feel like it's going to tuck, you've gone too far.

For the street, stock geometry typicaly works very well. I'd try possibly rasing the rear a bit to help with a pusing (running wide) problem. Raising the rear will also help turn in.

For the track, start with stock, and make minor changes, one at a time, noting lap times, until you get to where you want it.

Bottom line : if there's someone in your area that is a suspension guru (I don't mean you buddies friend who's this amature racer, a professoinal that knows his stuff), they'll be able to help you out. Even if they want $25/50 it's well worth the cash if they know what there doing.

keep in mind, that after raising the ride height, you have to reset the SAG...
