Never heard of them for a GL. I had 6" overstock on my 1974 CB750. There were longer ones available but it was recommended not to use them because the engine would be put at such an angle it would affect lubrication. You can try a progressive spring in the front forks to maintain the front height.

There is a guy out side of Quince, Washington that's been taking the older Wings and reworking them into cruisers, Not quite sure what he does to the forks. His name is Ronald (Ron) Buys.
