Hey DBohrer

Sorry to bud in on this discusion.

I need to replace my front fork seals this winter.

are you saying there is different springs/kits that I can buy? What place?

I would like to improve the handling and ride if I can(88 wing) It rides very nice and do not want to give up the cushyness of that.



Thanks

Doug

I have an 1800, so I'm more familiar the suspension deficiencies of that bike than on a 1500, but they are pretty similar.. Spring rates too weak for an 8-900 lb bike, damper rod forks, poor to no rebound and compression damping. The 1500 at least uses roller stem bearings, not the ball bearings more suitable for a bicycle they went to on the 1800..
The GL1500 and GL1800 are two completely different bikes.........! Different frames, suspension and everything else compared to the GL1500.

I am guessing you haven't ridden them both very many miles.
