     Were you able to compress and extend the fork tubes easily after you 
changed the seals and put in the new oil? You should have done this to 
"bleed" the forks. I don't remember what you did about springs but I have 
the heaviest ones RaceTech offers and the ride is firm but not stiff (for 
someone my size ;-)). Sounds like you have a binding issue. Do you have a 
fork brace? Murph's works great but it is a real PIA to shim it just right 
so it isn't causing any binding. If you have no fork brace, I would loosen 
the lower triple clamp and the front axle, bounce the front end up and down 
vigorously a few times and then tighten everything back up and see if it 
works better for you.
