Of course your bike needs new suspension...It needed new suspension almost from the first day it rolled out the shop.
One of the least durable components of a modern bike are the dampers. Rears generally tend to start losing it after as little as 10k miles, but forks last a good bit longer.
But before you start knocking over 7-11s to pay for a new set of Ohlins, try this - change your fork oil. Fresh oil will make you feel like you're riding a brand new bike. It's a pretty simple thing to do, provided you have a stand capable of lifting your front end off the ground by the bottom of the steering head.
I would guess that the dealer would charge you about $100 or so for this.
If you're not comfortable with removing wheels and brakes, best let them do it.
I'd recommend that before you spend any money, you scan the 'How do I' section of this board for 'suspension', and follow the suspension setup procedures you will find. They'll seem a little complicated at first, but there are thousands of riders here to help out. Could be that's all you need to do, compensate for wear and thinning oil in the dampers.
