Monster 750 fork improvements??

Monster 750 fork improvements??
OK on my S4 I put superbike 996 forks on with Ktech Ohlins internals , expensive and requires new yokes etc but was worth it as it now handles properly . and an Ohlins PRCS46 shock o the rear also expensive

Now my Monster 750 has basic non adjustable showa forks it handles much better than the S4 did on standard forks, so the issue is not handling but sometimes when pressing on they are a bit bouncy ,i dont want to replace them just make them more compliant and better rebound damping at present they have Ohlins linear springs 9nm and 5 w oil . The rear shock is still the original Sachs unit and it actually performs pretty well but as it is 12 years old will soon be upgraded to a Hagon or Shock factory unit .

any suggestions for the forks ??...eg revalve kit .heavier oil ????

So they definately are Showa Forks as most 620's and 800's have Marzocchis for which I would look at a Andrani Road Fork - Adjustable Cartridge Kit

For Non adjustable Showas I'd look at the FG Gubellini kits
