I would change the forks springs to straight rate, best bang for the buck up front. I wouldn't spend money on FJR fork valving unless you want racetrack performance. The Traxxion fork spring kit is plug and play, comes with all you need to just replace springs. You'll likely get 1.1 rate springs from them (their recommendation), which one might think are "too much" if you're under 200 lbs, but I have installed them for 170 lb. riders and they like it a lot... preload adjusters can be backed right out if you're a light weight.
First and foremost, the springs have to hold you up with proper sag values. Without that, you are adding preload and trying to get the damping right, a compromise that's all to familiar on the FJR OEM suspension.
A properly sprung rear shock will do wonders also, the various manufacturers install valving they believe to be appropriate for the FJR and you. Fully adjustable damping and remote preload is the higher end add-on if you want to tweak the tuning more easily (than removing the shock to adjust preload).
