i just bought an r6 recently. after i bought it however i noticed that the inside part of the fork ( the blue part, one was higher than the other. ), was uneven. the handling is kind of different than my friends r6. but i thought it was because the tires are unevenly worn. can that part of the fork effect the handling of my r6? if so, any suggestions how i can fix it. thank you any help will do good.

mine is a 2000 r6. yea i think it is an offset. it looks adjustable ( the middle part of the fork. ) the right fork is about 3 lines above the left fork. thank you. is there anyway you can adjust the middle part of the r6?

well if one side is has more lines showin then the other side u need to adjust it to where they are the same. havin one side stiffer or softer then the other side is quite dangerous. if that dont fix it then let u know. :cheers

ok im not positive on this but this pic will help. at the top of your fork there should be a screw head lookin part(its in the middle of the blue part in the pic). u need to turn this and the lines should disappear or more will appear. now if this is how your bike looks at the top of your forks then this should work for ya, if not check the manual in the download section of the forum and u can find where the adjustments can be made and how they can be made.
