Hey guys, has anyone done the KX100 fork mod to there 140? If so, was it difficult? How well did it work?

Thanks

Buy them, Bolt them on, go ride. Use KLX wheel and KX brake brake line.
Use either master cyclinder. KLX master is softer and more progressive better for newer riders. KX master is great.
Stiffer springs and valving needed for all but the smallest riders. KLX front fender just touches tire on the big hits or drops.

Thanks 4stoker. My sons 11 soon to be 12 didn't want to buy a new bike as he gets older. Looking to get the most out of the KLX140 I can, bought it new and has set for almost a year. It only has about 1/2 hour total on it! Can't see buying a new bike. Thanks

I'm looking to do the fork mod on my wifes 140l and was wondering if there were any particular years of forks to use or if any of the upside down forks will work. I found a good deal on a complete front end from a 94 KX80 big wheel but just want to make sure they will work. I'm also curious about the rear shock from that bike, will it be a good candidate for switching over to the KLX.

Thanks, John

that's too old. They need to be 1999 or newer... I think. Here is the link to the comprehensive thread.

Too old because that is before the years with the upside down forks or too old and they won't bolt on? The picture that I saw of the bike that is being parted out has the upside down forks so if that year is too old maybe they were swapped out at a later date. Any info would help as I don't want to buy them if they won't work.

Thanks, John

damn, you got me. I thought it was because they were the standard forks as opposed to the upside down forks. A Google image search shows a bunch of both styles. That's all I got. Sorry Man

Well, I found a few but they wanted more then I was willing to spend on them. I am just waiting for a set at the right price. I'm sure some will come up sooner or later.

Thanks, John

check on ebay, and the pre 1998 forks were old school. no valving and very few parts to hop them up, also heavy
