Were you able to buy sufficiently stiff fork springs? The GS has got to weigh about 200lbs more than the YZF.
Breaking has not been an issue with the stock setup, lots of offroad and onroad miles ive never needed any more stopping power, that was one thing i was concerned with but it hasnt been an issue at all, and the springs yeah i seem to have them pretty close, dont feel to stiff and havent gotten it to bottom out once yet even after some descent jumps, you may have trouble if your a heavier rider but im only 175 so the heaviest ones i got worked well for me.
