holy snappin thread revival batman!

Sorry to be dumb - but I am a newby 690 owner with the 22-24mm clamps.

I am used to my 250exc/xcw 2t KTM, and took the big girl into the bush and on to dirt roads - it is a big effort to get the bugger to turn! Wants to push on straight ahead.

The fork legs are flush at the top and am going to drop them thru a fewmm at a time to try out, but am wondering if the offset described here will help make her turn sharper?

(which is the sharper steering setting?)

Thank you in advance,
Gary

Bump old thread.

The offset is towards the front, so more offset = less trail giving quicker steering. The OEM setting is 24 mm when the dot on the steering stem (under cap) is towards the rear.
