Options for Tiger 800 XC

I am finding that my Tiger is less stable on forest roads than I would like. I have experienced a shimmy that starts around 60 mph on gravel roads, which only seemed to get worse with increasing speed. Although the majority of the miles I put on the bike are on pavement, mix of one or two up, the performance I seek is in dirt and gravel roads one up with camping gear. I am big so I am sure at a minimum new springs would help. I am interested in finding out if you have worked on the Tigers in the past and if there are various options.

Thank you,
Scott Hollenback
