whats your real problem?

i never had probs with my ´00 gen1 fork (epual to all gen1´s exept color) with
- wilbers springs type "promoto" with
- new oil 5W20 , not the (wilbers´) SAE 15, but airspace / fork oil level 105 mm as wilbers homepage say
- indicators (rebound / compression) to origin like the manual say
(i am 6´4" with ~105 kg full dressed)

so set
I even drive it at our "racetrack" and let the footrests scratch - without any problems .

Interesting stereotype there regarding "Scots"

The 1250 is kind of a gen 3 Bandit although there was a Gen 2 1200 offered along with it (gen 1 was from '96-early '00).

…...and to the OP, not sure if it would need an HFR rebound valve.
