I have an '03 1000 and just did my forks. I installed the RaceTech valve kit and Traxxon Dynamics springs. It made a big improvement in the way sharp bumps are handled and the handling in general. I weigh 200lbs and used the .95kg per mm springs. The front doesn't dive near as much under braking and cornering. The bike is much more stable.
I have come to believe that the handling problems with the stock bikes is with the forks not the shock. 8)
