Thank Dom, that clears this up.

Where I am confused is why there are two offset markings as I am unaware that there is offset adjustment on this triple?  ???  I wonder if it changed with the 2020/21 change in suspension and fork travel? Maybe Eddie can clarify?

I'll ask Eddie tomorrow.

Yes it is the offset. I had a Speedbrain XTrig adjustable triple set for my G450X and it had similar markings.
Interesting... what offset would that be? And how does one adjust between the two?
Ok wait I see it, I think. There is an insert of sorts that seems like it can be rotated to have the dimple at the top (22mm) or the bottom(24mm). This will adjust the distance that the forks are from the center of the steering stem, effectively, hence changing trail of the wheel... and steering responses, etc.

But, am I correct in assuming the bottom triple clamp must also be adjusted the same? Otherwise the forks won't sit perfectly perpendicilar to the triple clamps, and you're adjusting rake angle too. Or is that amount of "non-perpendicularness" not really an issue?

Quick and easy offset adjustment between 20 mm or 22 mm:
Disassembly of the front wheel and fork is not necessary!
The triple clamp-offset is the distance of the horizontal center line of both fork tubes to the center of the steering axis, about which the fork legs are offset from the steering axis (referred to as dimension X). The offset set can be seen at a glance by the marking on the triple clamp.
Offset adjustment options:
Shorter offset: Stability on short straights
Longer offset: easier and faster turning into bends

OomD,

a longer offset (i.e highest angle) will also be a bit more stable in sand as it does same-ish as dropping the rear.
You may want to try this mebbe?  ;)

On the XTrig Yes the bottom has two bolts and it gets swopped there as well.

Thanks, was thinking of this too, just didn't want to hijack 2SD's thread. But, if you say it is the "highest angle" it implies only the top triple is adjusted? Because if you adjust both your angle will remain the same (although the trail will change).

Okay don't worry, please ignore my stupidity. My google-fu showed me that the top and bottom is adjusted simultaneously, mostly by means of the steering stem. Sorry I (wrongly) assumed the top and bottom can adjust separately.

Eddie, the Cape dealer for Husky says that the 22-24 is the offset, the torque of the stem bolt is 15Nm. :biggrin:

As I said ... except the torque spec of the stem bolts is 12Nm NOT 15Nm. Yes I sound like a stuck record - close but no cigar for Eddie  8)
