Check the fork to make sure there is no scoring or rough spots. Assuming it's clear, then new fork oil and new seals (both sides).

But an upgrade, say using all the bits recommended and available from Race Tech would be something that I, too, would like to try.

what everyone said above and get the correct rate springs for your weight, and if you want to get better performance on the track, a revalve by a good suspension guru.
