conventional damper rod forks usually need tuning, on my 06 sportster, prolly the cheapest suspension Hxxxxx could buy i bottomed a lot and weigh 175. adding fluid + or changing the viscosity and a spring change can help but damper rods are 40's no tech and are not easy to get a good setup. if more preload does not work a new shock setup for YOU will. i put a penske on my hammer + the ride is amazing, they are $$$ but built to order with quality. racetech and others may have cartridge kits which will work well when set up for you. theres lots of threads on suspensions especially on Hxxxxx forums as their suspensions are poor, said kindly!!! depends on what you want and are willing to $$$$, keeping the bike a while makes better stuff worthwhile
