drop your forks about 1/8" in the triple clamps, what kind of dunlops did you buy? i hate dunlops, about the only thing i found their good for is selling them to ppl who dont know any better. another thing is your xr is so tall, and top heavy, its really hard to get a stable feel out of it in the dirt. lift your bike in the air on a lift, crate or something so theres no weight on the front forks, and take the bleeder skrew out and see if you have alot of air built up. alot of ppl dont realize you have to release the built up air in your forks, or you will have a pneumatic action, instead of dampening from your oil. they tend to bounce, and will take the weight off the tire, loosing traction. oh, and btw, where have you been, havent seen you at the park since last summer?
