Its worthwhile doing some challenging sections just to see how capable they are. They are just a big tractor. When we did the 42nd MarkS noticed a big difference in how the BMW forks performed compared to how his KLR handled. No real compression damping for the 1st portion of the fork stroke. It was probably about then that I decided to do the swap. One other things to bear in mind is that I sometimes also carry a pillion. Nice to have some external adjustability to cope with that. Changing fork oils on the stock forks made a noticeable difference. Not hard to do, And not hard to change if you get it too firm. Here's my link 1 & link 2 to that. Not sure that a Racetech or Intimator valve set up is the way to go. Phreaky Phil investigated that with CTK Technical, and didn't proceed.
