Fork Fluid

My RG takes a nose dive when i apply the front brakes. Its not horrible or unsafe, but it bugs me. I am using what ever the stock fluid is, what can i do to stiffen it up?

Mine does the same. Plan on changing to heavier fluid . This will do the trick.

2010 FLTRX , Stage 1, 13" Madstad, Mono tubes, SuperShox, Heritage style bars. Alpine CDE-HD149BT,Soundstream Picasso Nano Series PN4.520 , 5X7 and 6.5 Infinity Kappa speakers
If I have to explain ,you wouldn't under stand anyway.

I asked about going to a heavier fluid last week at my dealer.
Going to a heavy duty fluid should help.
Mechanic said Heavy Duty is ok just dont use the Racing fluid, or it would be a very hard ride.
