I sure appreciate all of the input and suggestions. I don't have internet at the house so have fallen behind in the reply department.
Roadscholar: Thanks for the suggestions I will do some more searching. I refuse to grow up and still have several modern sport bikes and a bike for track days so do understand sag and such and I do try to keep the old girl pretty well maintained. I renewed the ISos about 4K miles ago, so think I could benefit from a little damping adjustability in the rear. I totally agree about the Norton being the best!
Nortonspeed, Scooter62, Kommando: Thanks for your helpful input, also.
HortonsNorton: I run a little in-house sheet fed print shop for the Christian Motorcyclists Association. We have a couple of Ryobi 3200s and an old Multi 1250 set up for envelopes. Strictly old school and low tech!

I have a set of adjustable damping Hagons on my 850.
I also have a pair of non adjustable damping Hagons on my Triton.
In my opinion Hagons are underdamped on both bikes, even on the max setting. Too bouncy.
I will not be buying them again.

Reading and learning, since I am just on re-entry to the Norton world. This thread raises a question for me that I haven't seen much on. What are you guys using for fasteners? The pics look like there are some nice SS bolts with nyloc nuts on 'em. How much of your bike are you keeping BSW and how much are you converting over to something else?

You don't need to convert any BSW for the chassis.
