dampening adjustment

So I have about 75 miles on my 98 hawk now and have been concerned about the way it turns into corners, after reading about the suspension setup then checking out the dampening adjustment I have found that the left adjustment is flush and the right is at about 6 threads showing. Think this might explain the odd handling in the turns?
I have all next week off so I think I am going to spend a day or two trying to setup the suspension.

You might have a look at Hawkrider's site:!!!
There's a lot of useful suspension information there.

Yes, that's a problem. Both sides should have the same settings. There's a lot of info on the Knowledge Base subforum, and the search function is priceless. Start by reading "How to set sag".
