Suspension improvements on an '02 919

Hey, just wondering what the cheapest and easiest way to improve the suspension is on an 02 919. I rode a friends Gixxer and the ride quality was much better. I'm not going to be doing track days or really fast riding. But, I would like a smoother ride and a little more planted feeling. Is there an economical way to achieve this? I know there are some very expensive options that would be best but they are out of my price range. What improvements are available for less money? Thanks.

Those forks went for $262. A excellent price considering some of the recent auctions.

I'm happy to report a WT member won them.
