Nothing against professionals, but I enjoy doing it myself as much as riding. Same with old cars.

Agree 100%. When I did my conversion I was interested in top results so used a pro tuner who had done this before. I love them!

Malibu: I was wondering how you made out with your setup. Im about to do a rebuild/revalve on my '99s. I wasnt crazy about the handling of the bike after the conversion but I didnt do anything other than pull the forks up in the clamps. They could be much better!

replace o-ring with a spring

check the midvalve float

soften the base valve

make sure you have the correct rate springs / good bushings, seals, oil, etc.
