Re: What does this adjust?
the slotted screw on the end of the steering damper is a plug.
It should have an o-ring under it if I remember correctly.
You can "overhaul" the damper with new seals & oil, (I used 5w fork oil) & it will still leak, preventing rust in the front suspension area. It's a good thing the damper doesn't do much. Looks like the little spongy thingy is missing from the damper mounting.
I notice that you've got the Spiegeler brake lines which is a good upgrade.
The original shock / spring in the front might be getting a little weak. If you change it you can use the opportunity to install a new dust boot on the ball joint (looks like it has a tear).
