If you front forks are bottoming out, you need to add a heavier weight fork oil most of the time. If you're using type H-D type "E" oil, you may want to try something like PJ1-30 wt. That's what I run in my FXDWG. It will stiffen the front end. Of course, the quantity of oil you put in the forks has a lot to do with it as well. I'd stick with the factory recommended quantity unless I could not get the forks to dampen the way I wanted them too.

As far as upgrading your suspension, take a look at Progressive. They make some stuff that might be suitable for what you need.

Good Luck
