Daytona 955 forks clicking

I recently bought a 2001 daytona 955i which is absolutely fantastic.the only problem so far though is that the front suspension clicks when pumping the forks up and can also feel it through the bars if going over heavy bumps.the p. o had the forks really soft so I have adjusted them to be a bit firmer but the clicking is still present.the p.o also had the forks rebuilt my maxton around 10k ago.i can't feel any play in the steering head bearings so is it just that the forks need rebuilt again?

RS 125 Front Forks

KTM 950 SM Suspension Setup

HelloLast year I bought a Ktm 950 sm 2006 and I love it!The previous owner had the suspension set up to very stiff sports setting and although it works well with the bike, the setting is a bit too stiff for me.I am 5' 7" and the height of the bike is also an issue for me. I can manage but sometimes struggle, for instance at bike rallies on wet slippery surfaces.As well as some advise on softening the suspension, I am wondering if anything can be done with the suspension to lower the bike slightly?Any help or advice will ...
