Cos 07, What worked for me on my '04 was to raise the fork tubes ~5 mm (I lost my notes) from the flush it was delivered with. The D955i has a longish wheelbase and this helped reduce trail for an improved turn in. For my '98 the fork tubes are raised ~2 mm and I have a 190-55 rear tire for much the same effect on trail. The '02 was stable with the same set up as the '04 despite it had less trail and a wee bit less wheelbase to begin with... it was just neutral in the turns, my favorte D955i.
Comfort is a very important factor that is sometimes overlooked. A good overall fitment leads to confidence.
I think the biggest one for me was the clip-ons. I just couldn't get used to the angle of the OEM bars. The Tarozzis may not be higher but the angle makes a huge difference to me in terms of handling and comfort.
