    Just got my new F8GS 2 weeks ago and love it, the forks are really soft and very harsh, anyone experiment with rebuilding them or no anyone that will. I was thinking slightly heavier oil and a gold valve kit would be prefect but won't tackle that myself (I know my limits). Thanks in advance

    I'm using a .52 spring and 10 wt oil @ 115 mm.
    A little better than stock.
