Angry Front rotor scraping Fork

Hey Guys - 79 xs11 SF

My right side rotor is rubbing against the fork (see image 1) - can I just loosen the pincher bolt on the bottom of the right side fork (see image 2), tap it over a little and then retighten or do I need to take the whole thing down and realign?

It's a slight flaw in the machining in the special fork lowers. That right side needs to be centered manually.
