When you start researching suspensions you'll find that while the stock spring rates are soft the bigger problem is the valving sucks, the forks will hydrolock or bottom out and that is what causes the harshness.

After I put the forks on, before I got the shock I thought the shock felt like it was going to launch me, I then turned the rebound adjuster in but it still didn't feel great.

With both in I think I need to adjust the fork damping slightly still, but it feels so good most of the time I make very small adjustments and then ride alot to see if I did the right thing.
