Damn! Thanks guys!
I've already got stiffer springs up front, so all I really need to do is replace the oil and seals. I don't think I'm gonna mess with emulators or intiminators. The only thing I think I need for this job is to cut a piece of pvc to use as a seal driver unless there's a size that'll work fine as is - I haven't measured yet.
I already took the skid plate off and had a guy at work tack the mount back on. Next week I'll bring it in and lift the bike so we can get under there to weld it back on properly. It's a shitty design to start with though...might have to see if we can beef it up.
