Locking ring. And dust seal left. 20200425_131925_copy_780x1040.jpg just have to put oil. In .bleed it set oil height. And instal spring and rods.and button it up. They are done and on the bike.and tested. Probably going to adjust compression 2 clicks softer and try again.

    There is something oddly satisfying about rebuilding forks.

    Suspension is key on these. Good suspension can make you a faster rider. It still has stock valveing. As far as i know. Nice smooth ride now.
    Used the syring tool . works good.

    No it was the tusk oil level tool. Basically the same. Bought the tusk bushing/seal driver also. That thing works great.Better than pvc. They were done in no time.then the mandatory test ride:D.

    Yeah. Right tools make life easy. I'm going to do the yz forks too eventually. Almost had my hands on a kdx.

    I would do anything to get a nice KDX220...or 200...or 250. Shoot, I'd just like a KDX.

    I totally agree. I miss my '92 YZ250, but I don't miss how much of a mess it was.
    I've been looking at getting one of the GPX Moto TSE250R's. It's a Chinese bike (not made with Coronavirus) that people have been claiming its "a modern KDX." That's about the best praise you can give ANY bike.

    But can you get parts. It's hard to beat Japanese durability .
