I'm guessing with being much higher, the forks seemed very weak compared to the other GL1000's.
I've never used Progressive fork springs before.
I'm thinking they're worth a shot.
I just installed a set of Progressive fork springs in my 82. It called for 20wt fork oil, and I only had 10wt in the garage, so that is what got used. It made a dramatic difference in the front end of my rig, even with the wrong weight oil.
I ordered a jug of 20wt oil, and had every intention of changing it out, but I used some of it on my FT500 forks when I gave it new seals, and don't think I have enough left.... None of the shops in the area carry 20wt, so I will have to order....again.
Not a real cheap upgrade, at around 100 bucks. But it sure makes a difference.
