Still working on Travel
Previous mod the washers started giving up from bottoming (pic1)

Removed washers and ground chamfer in lock collar (pic 2) for it to seat up flat against top cap and then bottoming bushing up against it (pic 3)
and made another 1/4" of travel
will switch to just a 1 piece type shock bushing later, so even another 1/4" travel if coil bind doesn't show up

moved circle clip to top hole for rubber bottoming stop to be centered and hold it up (pic 4)
Clip will not be necessary when switching to a 1 piece stop with smaller I.D. / same O.D.

Re checked for coil bind (+1/4" ) still none

Changed out the fork seals so jumped up to max oil level with 10wt just shy of hydrolock (will add a little more spring rate per say)
Lots of back n forth level testing, but lt should be close to 7.1 oz with the new extra 1 1/4" travel

It still to soft, will go up to 15wt maybe even 20wt to avoid having to break the bottom legs loose to add a spacer, may not be room for spacer anyways with 1 1/4" mod

Or thinking about adding a 4" or so spring to the top side of damper section instead of adding more preload to the stock bottom spring with a spacer
Again, May have to with top 1 1/4" mod. I gotta be running out of spring ?

Cheep fix to avoid the doing it the right way with Ohlins kit
And could be done without pulling the forks and would have more travel .
It's not that I'm cheap' I just like the MacGyver stuff .... honest.... no really ....

Mikuni VM26-606 MOD

Mikuni VM26-606 MOD

I did this a while back and bikes running great with more snap off the throttle but mid & full throttle still feels the same. but i was going to try other Carbs and combinations so didn't post up while everything was still fresh on my mind wanting to post the best option for switching to carb mod i could come up with.

I Bought the TBParts Carb Kit for the KLX110 Stock head kit
Only the Carb and air filter was usable and ditched the filter for a UNI anyways ..
https://tboltusa.com/store/tbparts-m...head-p-86.html

Needed differant Intake, intate boot, differant jets, Throttle housing and cable, and air filter (my different choice)

Unplug and remove DFI system and tape off all connectors
No by-pass resistors or other modifications needed

Slot intake hole one side (intake for KLX) / pic 4
KLX has equal distance holes from port and the Z' has a offset hole @ one side only . but port matches up due to common hole they both share
Also slot gasket and open hole up to port size / pic 5

Install gas petcock in tank / pic 6

Remove 12v wires to fuel pump, but leave the sending unit wires for a working gas gauge / pic 7

KLX110 Throttle housing and cable and vented gas cap / pic 8

Laugh at check engine light being on / pic 9

Re-jet to best performance

Grip it & Rip it / pic 10

what was the purpose of swapping to a carb instead of going with a bigger tb?

It had nothing to do with getting better performance.

Motorcycle Carb guy for 20 years, I no nothing about DFI except it cost big bucks to tune and replace anything that gos bad on it. With a $120 carb i will never have any of those issues and cost and i know how to fix it and tune it for $10 dollars worth of jets.

And also the fun and challenge of doing it

i get it, it would be cool for these bikes to have an injection system similar to the automotive Holley systems that learn as you drive.
