forks slightly tweaked

Okay, I haven't asked for help in a few hours, so here goes. The new to me 2003 had a low speed drop, barely scratched the fairing. Previously on dirt bikes you found a good tree and popped the handle bars. With these street bikes, can I loosen upper/lower triple clamps and bring them back? Do I need to loosen the big center nut? They are not off much, but I notice it.

Should be able to adjust by loosening the pinch bolts.

This is just me being picky...if the forks were "tweaked" too much, I would check the runout on the axle.
