Don't know which you may have used but I wouldn't go much more corse than that, certainly wouldn't use the green pad. Cross-hatch patterns I've seen on High-end production springers (from factory) were very fine. What lube did you use in the comp tube? Should be just a little bit of moly paste. I also wonder if that mainseal may be a little too tight. Tight enough to create only a few lbs resistance as the piston slides is about right. Tighter seals will eventually wear in and improve.
