R100 front suspension upgrades?

I've got a frankenbike R100S engine and front end on a SWB /5. I'd like to improve the handling. I was reasonably happy with its handling until I got my tricked out RD350, and now I'm not so happy.What do you all recommend for upgrades? I'd think I'd like to lower the front end a little. I've had the bike for a long time, and it has always made a load clank when the front suspension tops out. Is this just the facts of life, or can I get rid of this? Seems like there would be some kind of bump stop to cushion this effect, but I haven't seen anything like that in there when I've had it apart. Thanks all.
