I would start with springs first and the emulators. Add a stiffer spring in back, it may be enough. Cogent has been giving good service for years, just keep in mind the recommended spring rates are for max all around traction. I prefer a stiffer ride, more street like so I go two steps stiffer than the cogent recommended springs up front. Worked great for me. I like how cogent modifies the oem rear shocks. Well, I guess it still done that way. It's been a while since I needed a shock.
But, it's the same with custom seats, pick what you like. I've had a few bikes and learned I like less brake dive personally. I was bottoming out when ridding aggressively. But I did start out with the cogent recommended spring rates when I did my first suspension mod. It was good if your not aggressively braking often.
My dr650 was set up per cogent and it was great off pavement, I'm 260 pounds plus riding gear and tall, so stock suspension goes away quick on my bikes. I like added height and springs to give me decent loaded sag.
