With the original problems you had with the bike possibly being 03MY and now this? Your dealer has rather a lot to answer for...

Surely the wheel will be slightly at an angle, which would mean it should be easier to turn into either a left or right turn, and harder to turn the opposite way?

Now I'm trying to work out the physics of counter steering and wheel alignment, my head hurts! Saying that I am the same as you in preferring left handers, Andy Ibbot told me that this is probably due to the UK roads and being cambered.

it makes no difference to wheel/axle or ride - the springs compensate one being compressed by a bit more than the other, it'll only make a difference at full compression where one bump stop works first or full extension where one tops out before other. Needs levelling up and checking out though.

Sorted a ride height gauge for rear now DCR, can drop your rear adjustor rod out, clean, set-up and refit in no time.

Gizmo, you're right obviously, I was thinking along the lines of static forks, obviously one leg will be extended/compressed more than the other.... d'oh!

I guess it will only make a difference under hard braking and bottoming out etc

it'l alter preload slightly as one leg is compressed more, but as we've yet to check the preload adjustors they might be out as well..........
