Has anyone had the GSX-S1000's front fork dampening revalved, or replaced the front forks altogether? I replaced the rear shock and it helped immensely on the rear, but now the front forks feel like they have way too much compression dampening whenever going over roads with a very irregular (bumpy) surface. It seems as though the forks momentarily hydraulic lock. I grit my teeth and tense up knowing I'm about to get hammered through the bars.
I road a 2017 Tuono Factory with Ohlins suspension about a month ago and the difference in ability and level of confidence to tackle rough roads is unreal between that bike and the GSX-S1000. The Aprilia felt wholly composed, the suspension soaked up the bumps almost as though they weren't there. I have ridden the GSX-S1000 through the same section of road on which I tested the Aprilia, but it is nowhere near as confidence inspiring as the Aprilia. The Aprilia's suspension floated over the bumps and the bike felt like it was glued to the road surface.
So fellow GSX-S1000 riders how did you improve the front fork performance on your bike?
