Are there upgrade springs for the 50mm Marzocchis?

Are there upgrade springs for the 50mm Marzocchis for my 2016 1299?
I'm just looking for heavier front springs (I weigh 280 lb, think stocky highlander, not Sumo wrestler).
I know there are replacement cartridges, which also allow for different springs. And of course I could install Ohlins forks (I now wish I had bought the S version), but I just want to buy stiffer springs, and haven't been able to find any.

Race Tech in Corona, CA has some great stuff. They have a shop there and will do an initial Sag setting for $20

Save yourself some trouble and replace the cartridges and seals while the forks are open. I persisted with the OM stuff for far too long. Cost me more $ and time in the long run.

Thanks. Its becoming clear to me that I should just pay the $2300 for the Ohlins forks. I wish I'd purchased the S version, but that's water under the bridge.

you'll need 899/959/1199S/1299S/R triples for the Ohlins forks as well. the base forks are 57mm and the ohlins and 899/959 are 53mm

Ohlins NIX30 fork cartridges will make you very happy, 1.10 kg "husky" spring rate, and they're even on sale!
