gen 4: front trys to tuck in tight turns?

Bike handles great but in super tight turns bike slid front and tried to ticks couple times. Tires are stock 16's and have 2100mi and front is beat on the sides. On dirt this would need a click or two out on rebound does that sound right? Putting on GPA 211's for a track day next Monday and Dave Moss will be there for suspension set up so he'll get it right I was just wondering if I was going the right direction

Have a pro set suspension for sure. Also, stock bt-016 is junk. D211 gpa or q2 will do wonders for grip.

More throttle! I don't know your experience level or riding style but be sure to accelerate gentlly through the turn to shift some of the weight to the rear. Backing off the gas can tuck it, or not enough.
