According to my manual, I should have 1 notch in view on my fork tubes above the triple clamps. As delivered by my dealer, I have five. An issue? This configuration makes it turn quicker at the expense of stability? I'm going to bring it to a shop here in Houston to be gone over, but I wanted to ask. Thanks!

One notch is about right for the factory setting, I've got mine down to 4 and your right the turn in is quicker but without much noticable stability issues. I'd move it up a coupe and try it out. Move it around till it feels right.

Depends on what you like and what kind of roads you ride. Five may be a little twitchy. Four makes for quick transitions but mine required constant corection to hold a line in a high speed sweeper. Like T07 said, try different settings on the kind of roads you ride.

I'll push it down to two and see what it's like - thanks guys!
