Just picked up a KLX 110 to use as a pitbike and also share with my 11 year old daughter. I can tell already the forks are going to bottom like crazy if I even look at it. However, I am NOT looking to go whole hog and buy new forks, frames, wheels, disc brakes, etc. I weigh 170 and I'm not planning to hit triples on this thing, that's why I have a 450.
That being said, what do you guys recommend as far as basic/low cost mods -- stiffer springs (how stiff?), heavier oil (what weight?), etc. I've also heard of swapping out forks from the older KX-60 because they will accept my drum brake. I also don't want to make it so stiff that my 100 lb daughter feels every bump, since we'll be sharing it. Would heavier fork oil and higher quantity suffice?

Race Tech offers both springs and Gold Valve Emulators (converts old school damping rod style forks to work like modern cartridge forks with a custom setup) for the forks. We also make replacement shocks for Two Brothers.

If you're interested, shoot me an email and we offer a discount for VitalMX members. We can definitely get you a setup that is plush yet firm and point you in a great direction that will be a compromise between what you are wanting and your daughter.

Just as Riesenber448 stated above the Race Tech Emulators are really a great product for that style of fork.
