    Hmm...I may just pull the trigger on these. Seems to be enough good feedback on various bike forums. Of course, could just drill and tap the existing caps!

    Well I Honda cb1100 adjusters on, it was about 3/8" more tension on the spring at the minimum setting. Instantly it felt better, less dive and a more solid feel, sag was reduced around a 1/2" As good as it was, I cranked them down to the first line, which I think I will leave them there. The front felt more planted to me with little dive under braking. Ride was still compliant and sag was reduced another 1/4' or so. Total sag I would say was around a 1 to 1 1/4", with me aboard, my weight 225lbs.
