because the front wheel weight bias is too low for one kicked out
it is real simple to derake the steering head, bub
just cut the backbone up under the tank
heat up the downtube carefully and coreectly
pull it in and repair the joint up top,add somre extra stiffness to the entire backbone the backbone subframes junction and where you bent it the downtube  and  nobody will be the wysir

Has the swingarm angle been discussed?

Has the swingarm angle been discussed?
It has.  The swingarm angle is at 21°, which is the same or pretty damn close to a stock RM as far as I can figure.  If someone has a resource for that information, I'm interested.  I know XB says the setup is all wrong, but the numbers are pretty damn close everywhere.   

Fork angle 30°/ Trail 5.5in / Wheelbase 62.3" / Ground clearance 13.75" / Swingarm angle 21°

For a dual sport, I don't understand how those numbers won't work.
