Check you spring rate to weight recommendation on Race Tech or MX Tech. You should have your bike sprung properly for you weight. It makes a difference.

I am also about your weight and ride hard. I swapped out to heavier racetech springs and added the racetech gold valves, 5wt bel-ray fork oil, and it is a completely different bike. probably some of the best money ive spent on it.

When you get the forks rebuilt make sure they replace the bushings and oil seals along with the dust seals you mentioned.
