I had the same feeling. Even with my "heavy duty" rebuilds from Apple
Hydraulics I found the suspension to be underdamped. I did the conversion
one piece brackets that bolt to the old shock mounts and the shocks are nice
However, it might be worthwhile to send the levers to World Wide
and see if Peter can fix the valving to make them as stiff as they ought to
be. I know my TR3 shocks are plenty stiff.
