If you haven't already, I would still try adjusting the striker plate just a little bit to reduce some of the tension as the door seal compresses, making it easier for the door to latch. You may find that a small adjustment on the striker won't even show as the door not aligning properly with the rear fender.

And don't forget, the striker also has an up-and-down adjustment as well as in-and-out, if I recall. Make sure it's aligned properly vertically.

Do you know that your door latch is working properly? If you were to intentionally make a large adjustment on the striker to where the door does not contact the seal at all, would the door latch smoothly?
Mark H. 1987 930, GP White, Wevo shifter, Borla exhaust, stock everything else. The result of a massive Pelicanite good will fire recovery effort. Truely an open book, ready for the slippery slopes to modification.
