Wondering how the toe should be set for optimal handling with stock suspension. I can clearly visually notice that my setup is currently toe'd out. I was thinking of just eye balling them straight down the middle, but before I do anything I figured I'd post this. Do these bikes like a positive toe setting? Do they like a negative setting? Or is straight down the middle better?

Negative (toe-in) for tracks around 1/8~1/2 toe adjustment depending on GNCC or MX racing...Some drag racers usually a 0~ 1/8 or more positive (toe-out) depending on swing arm length...!

Ok thanks. I guess I'll just leave it and see how it feels at the dunes. If I dont like how it feels, I'll try to bring them closer to 0.

I decided to give it a shot right now. I was striving for dead center, but it's at 1/8" toe in now and I tightened everything back up where it's at. Visually it looks a lot better, we shall see how it feels in another week.
