Re: Heavy Front End
The fork springs may not be suited for your body weight. I just changed the springs to RaceTech .90 rate on my bike, to match my body weight.
Also like they said check to see if you're leaking any fork oil from the seals or the bottom of the forks.
If you haven't had the fork oil changed in the last 8,000 miles change it, and the seals if they leak.
If all of that stuff is ok, then adjust the spring pre-load adjusters equall amount of turns on each side ( 14mm wrench ). Start with just half a turn each. If that doesn't do the trick then back out the damping adjuster screws all the way, THEN turn them in 6 clicks each. If that still doesn't work then turn them in one more click for each fork.
But before you do the adjustments have a buddy help you set the suspension sag in front and rear. SportRider.com has a good article to help set sag on any sportbike.
My '95 Blade did basically the same thing you are describing. A 17" front wheel helps a lot. Also this bike doesn't like taking sharp corners around 7 to 15 mph. It feels "heavy". Start with setting up your suspension's sag.
