need pics and year - you are referring to changing out parts on the suspension

no clue on the new Showa stuff, but things u may try;

-disconnect sway bar - unless you are rally racing - really not needed and softens it up
-run as low air pressure as you can get away with - more springy from the tires
-get rid of the stupid football nipple bleeders if u have them and put schrader valves in

these are band aids that help stop the bleeding

-the talons are notoriously harsh - which means Honda kinda blew it out of the box - if you are looking for a really good comfy ride - revalve\springs......
