"At a tortoise-like pace", Tom would say slowly.
As for the forks, atmospheric pressure. If your forks need help they need something other than the maximum 2 lbs of air pressure I might add.
Air is a crutch. Though most other people with more experience will quiet me down, while I will mumble to myself, "air is a crutch.", he said lamely.
If it's been more than two years with the present oil in the forks start by cleaning things out and replacing the oil with fresh stuff (according to the destructions in the service manual.)
There's a long list of modifications that people make to alleviate dive and other unwanted reactions from the front suspension, and how far you have to go depends on you, your load, your riding style, where your ride, and what's in your wallet.
Progressive springs, heavier oil, changing the spacer length, changing the oil height, fork brace, etc. (make one change at a time) satisfy some people while others will end up with wanting better. Some people claim no problem with putting in more air than I would. Others spend bux$ on cartridge emulators, straight springs tuned to their weight and use, and lighter fork oil. There are a lot of variables and a lot of knowledge to gain, and if completely on your own--a lot of wrenching and experimentation and wallet searching to wade through.
If your stature is American average, try progressive springs and +5 wt heavier oil to start. If MX is in your past, that probably won't do it.
If you get to the point where you are willing to spend serious dollars, Cogent Dynamics is as good as everybody says they are.
