Get some stiffer springs for the Phorks from Progressive, they work real well to stiffen up the forks. The cheap route for the rear would be to get some stiffer springs on the stock shocks, since WP, Ohlins or other aftermarket reer shocks cost big $$$ ($400+ dollars). I had some used FOX air ajdustable shocks on my mighty KZ750, they worked real good to keep the headshake down at speed.

Good helpful advice here, I must have gone to the wrong site! Cuddy is being generous (that's his way!) on the cost of new shocks, Ohlins are likely to set you back over a grand. I'd just emphasize making one change at a time and going for a ride to evaluate the change. The only thing I'd think you might need to invest in is new springs (especialy for the fork), which are relatively cheap, and that's a might need to sort of thing.
Sachi, you're turning into an old Jewish man like my dad, using "feh"!
