Here's a few more. Kawasaki will be displaying the bike at the Indy and Atlanta supercross races if you happen to attend...

As soon as I lift McGov's wallet after sneaking some Jack into his cereal I will forward the credit card number so you can begin version 2.0....

I have been looking at options for front forks for my Z125 and thinking about taking it a step further then the Ohlins kit. Do you think the forks that you used on this KLX140G build would work on the Z125? Thanks!

You don't want to go down that road... You'd need to buy the forks, machine a one-off triple clamp for the Z, and all wheel spacers and brake carriers. Once you had it complete and tuned to your tastes, you'd be looking somewhere around $5k. It would be 20% better than the drop in kit, at 20X the cost.

Thank you for the honest feedback! ?
Maybe someone will come out with a cartridge kit for it.
Have you ridden a Z with Ohlins drop-ins? It's honestly going to be really hard to beat for anything even close to the price. We use and sell a ton of them, and have never received anything but praise....

+1.


I have ZERO complaints with my Ohlins full suspension.
