Does changing the offset of the front end change the feel of the forks? Plushnes, stiffen or soften the forks? Thanks

More effect on steering, I would say. Changing offset changes the trail. More trail makes for slower, heavier feeling steering.

Yea I know it is for quicker or slower turning, just curious if it has any effect on the forks because of the geometry change?

The simple answer would be yes. By bringing the forks in (less offset) your also moving the motor closer to front wheel, effectively adding more weight to the front end...Bit suspension is much more complicated than that... Lol
