I have had my bike for two months now and my friend is looking at one as well and both think the front end feels kinda heavy on turns. I am coming from a SV650 and she is coming from a 02 900SS.. Any thoughts? Any other xx9 riders care to share their opinion.

27mm triples will do the trick and then change the steering head angle. alternatively or as well you can also fit bst c/f wheels

A heavy steering bike usually comes from something not setup right. I'd have someone get the suspension dialed in and if the bike doesn't have new tires, you might wanna try that as well. Tires get cupped very easily and once they do, the ability of the bike to turn quickly is diminished. Make sure you're also running the same tire sizes Ducati recommends with the proper pressures.

These bikes out-steer SV650's, which have the WORST, most piece of junk front end ever designed.
