    Best upgrade for KX65 forks?

    Hello,



    I am 190lbs and want to get my 2002 and 2003 kx65 forks upgraded. What would be the best upgrade for somebody my size and where can I get it done (I was planning on shipping the forks off to get the work done)? Presently the forks are stock. (one set will go on a klx 110 and the other will stay on a kx 65)



    Also, I have a 2002 KX65 that I was thinking about updating. Is there a shock anybody knows of that would work for my fat ass? I went to the kawasaki dealer and he did not have any ideas.



    Final question. Does anybody know where I can get a set of quality fork springs for a 2005 KX250? My dealer was able to order a Race Tech shock spring, but could not find a set of fork springs. I need something stiffer than stock.



    Thanks and Regards, Lon..

    dude oh yeah for the kx65 forks go with the manitou works cartridge kit in both of them theirs nothing out that can touch them.they blow circles around zocchi their like $450.00 installed thru pax racing but if you get both sets done don (owner of pax) will cut you a deal call him at 818-897-0373 between 9am & 5pm and tell him Que told you to call about these kits if you go to factory connection they will doe it but for $750.00 each. call don at pax and he will tell you the real on these kits. also you can go to www.paxracing.com to look at the kit. under suspension.

    The manitou fork kit is an excellent kit, but $450.00 The spring kit is only $90.00 and add 20wt oil and you save the rest of your money for other parts.

    I just got off the phone with the MotoHP guys. I ordered the aggressive 65 springs. What a nice group of guys to deal with! Thanks for the tip MTBRacer.
