I just got a 04 KLX thats all stock. Im 6'0 190. I am planning on buying the pitster gpx front end kit today unless some1 tells me other wise. Should I do the forks, shock and swinger first? Or should i do a big bore kit w/ 4th gear and clutch?



Any input would help thanks

The GPX kit is only $400 shipped. Thats dirt cheap. Thats why I chose those. Let me ask you this would you get a new GPX kit for $400 or a used set of zokes for $850? are the zokes twice as good because they are twice the dough. If they really are that much superior i'll definitely go w/ the marzocchis

change the oil in the gpx forks and go ride. for the money, they are a good buy. if you are serious racer, spend the extra if you want but with the right oil the gpx forks work great. make sure that you keep the spokes tight though. may want to upgrade the brake fluid and to a better rim eventually. get them and if you don't like them sell them on here for a little loss down the road.

You will need to change the stem to a klx stem, make sure you take it to a hydro press frist to save you some time!!

Remember that you won't be able to install the forks until you get a rear set up too. At the bare minimum you will need a +2 and a aftermarket stock length shock.

I agree, go with the suspension first. THe GPX forks are very good. No need to build a killer engine that you can't rip on because the suspension is beating you to death.

I'd do suspension first (since thats what I'm doing) No point in having all the power and thrashing the stock suspension. Just to give you an idea my kid when he was 9 broke the weld on the stock swinger near the shock mount. That was with an all stock bike!! So suspension should be first in my experience. Since then he has the gpx frontend and the sik110 +4 swinger.

I agree with most on here that suspension is the way to go. Get it all sorted out to get the ride and power on the ground. I went the opposite way and did the motor work first and I am getting beat to death with the suspension. Lesson learned, next time we do the suspension then the motor.
