I think it's a carb issue, regardless of position. Do you run individual vents on your carbs or are they Y'd before exiting the air box?

Sorry for your dilemma.

The older S models have more travel, if that interests you. My 05.5 forks have 11.8", with more than 13 in the rear! If you're gonna single track, it's the best option.
