I finally went riding for the first time in 2 months because of the snow. It was muddy, but I loved every second. During that 2 months, I did a few mods/service to my pig & I thought I'd let you know what I thought. 1st was the clutch mod. I added a steel plate to the inside of the clutch pack as described on The Pig Pen. I LOVE this mod. The clutch feels better than it did new. I can tell it has more bite, and the engagement/disengagement point is more instant. Excellent mod! 2nd, I replaced the front fork oil. It had been 3 hard ridden seasons, and I was bored. I am very glad I did that too. The stock oil had started turning into snot just like people warned me it would. Here's the weird part of that service. I let both forks hang for 24 hours. I got 20.5 oz. of oil out of each one. In the book, the total stock capacity is 21.5 oz. of oil for each. I thought, cool, I got most of it out... So, naturally I measured out 20.5 oz. of new oil for each fork. After putting it all together, my forks were much stiffer than they were before. I'm guessing that 3 years worth of dust & moisture increased the volume of the old oil. To maintain the original ride, one should probably add 1 oz. less oil than what they got out, and then add small increments of oil to fine tune the ride. Anyways, to make a long story short, I started fiddling with the compression & rebound. I ended up making each adjustment 2 clicks softer than what I had, and believe it or not, I like the ride better. I felt really plush for slower, technical riding, and it felt great at high speeds with less drop when I hit the front brake. My cousin rode it, came back an said "what bumps." I've read a lot of front fork talk here, but I never hear anyone talk about changing the oil level. People talk of changing oil weight, but not the level. I personally think the best fix to the stock forks is a higher oil level (I still use 5w), and softer settings on the compression/rebound. The manual says to add or subtract oil in 5ml increments. Doing some rough math, the oil level range in the book allows for around 8 increments of adjustment in either direction. I am not 100% sure where my oil level is at, but my guess is I'm around 3-4 increments above the stock level.
