Is the a specification, or has someone measured this, for the distance between the front forks with the fender and axle removed ? Or is this just set when the wheel and brake calipers are installed properly ?

Thanks

Clearance of brake caliper on left side determines the adjustment.

Measure the clearance between each surface of the left
brake disc and the left brake caliper bracket with a
0.70 mm (0.028 in) feeler gauge.
If the feeler gauge cannot be inserted easily, loosen the
front axle pinch bolts and move the left fork slider out until
the gauge can be inserted. Then retighten the left axle
pinch bolts.
CAUTION
" After installing the wheel, apply the brake several
times and recheck the caliper clearances
between each surface of the left brake disc and
the left brake caliper. Failure to provide clearance
will damage the brake disc and affect
braking efficiency.

William: The answer in #1 is copied out of the Honda Manual. What it means is there is no adjustment (side to side) of the forks possible or necessary until the wheel and left side caliper are installed. The adjustment is for clearance between the caliper and the rotor.
