Exactly what I meant, and exactly the procedure I ended up following:thumbup:ErockJL,
I believe what you are talking about, is the position of the LH fork leg's axle clamp in relation to the LH end of the axle. It will be about flush, but not quite.
This adjustment is important. Failure to get it aligned can result in a fork with binding action.
For the 650 guys, the 1000 fork is all different than the 650, and MUCH better construction.
You want to do this-
Install axle and all the other stuff (of course)
Tighten the axle nut, and then the RH clamp. If the axle spins, just snug the RH clamps to hold the axle from turning.
Hold the front brake and bounce the suspension a couple of time to center the fork on the axle.
Tighten the LH clamp.
Properly torque both LH and RH clamps and axle.
Hope this all helps.
