Handlebar stops?

Newbie here. Bought '07 1200 GS a month ago, and so far so good. Except...the handle bars, when turned to the left will contact the tank with the turn signal button; a full turn to the right and the bars hit a "stop" before any tank contact. Bike never down or on rough road, no visible distortion in bars. Any ideas (dealer says bars may be off; ie: not true)? Are there "stops" that may be adjusted?

there are no stops that can be adjusted, they are cast tabs in the bottom of the triple clamp.

loosen the handlebar clamps and rotate the handlebar upwards a bit and rotate lock to lock to be sure noting is contacting the fuel tank. if it's still uneven, you may have a bent bar, let the dealer address it.
