Anyone have a leading link front end just sitting around?
Progressive springs will help you, or just preload the existing with some pvc spacers. You're gonna want a fork brace, a billet top plate, or both- that front end will twist. Steering dampener too, and a better front brake (drilled disk, stainless line, soft EBC pads), or look for a dual set-up.

Finding a used LL for your bike will be tough, I bet.
