yah I hear what you are saying, so maybe 'rideability was a better word to use. I found mine was better on the back wheel after its slimming routine.
I reckon it just took some of the weight off the butt end and there was less of a trend to slide out under power when doing tight hillside turns up the single trax stuff.
It also helped its turning no end, the butt slides around real nice when u get on the gas - kind of nicely controlled. Doesn't seem to push into corners so much when the speeds up either.
