Has anyone tried converting the right hand fork leg of a Streetrod to the same cartridge as the left?
I've never seen such a primitive method of damping - or lack of it - as the right hand leg.

I wouldn’t suggest doing this.

The VRSCR/F forks are designed to each perform part of the front suspension requirements. The left fork leg provides the compression and rebound dampening and some of the compression spring support. The right fork leg provides some of the compression spring support and the rebound spring.

Non symmetrical telescoping front forks aren’t that uncommon. There used by HD on other models and by several of HD's competitors.

You may be better served upgrading the springs or adding Ricors
