Took the DR out for a short ride on Sunday, only did about 50km around some local back roads but the change in front fork behavior was noticable.

I had previously changed the fork oil to 15W to see how that performed and that’s definately too hard and makes the ride really harsh, particularly over small bumps. The 10w oil is a huge improvement.
