A couple of old discussions mention putting the fork cartridge parts that are in the right fork leg in the left one also. Can someone point me to Kawasaki part numbers?

Are there any other bikes with essentially the same Showa fork? Any bikes I could get salvage yard parts from?

For part numbers you can go to a site like cheapcycleparts and look through their microfiche. About your other question, I don't know, but I have read of other bikes with forks like ours, where damping is controlled in one fork tube, so it's not an uncommon practice.

I sent mine to Traxxion.
Ended up just revalving the one side and not adding the other.
Changed springs and much improved.
They had done one with the added valving and mine was very close.
more info needed. what kind of spring? rate? what was done on the valves?

i am in the midst of getting an R1 shock and would like to do up the front as well.

springs, best memory .95
valving, holes were cleaned out and some enlarged, it what I was told.
much better feel up front.

I'm working the R1 shock thingy.
Got my eye holes enlarged.
Got a RoadStar spring that looks too large.
It ought to be great when done.

Somewhere on here I posted about changing my forks oil... Oh, here it is:

Once I'd put ATF in, my forks were IMPROVED quite a bit and made a better match for the improvement I had at the rear with my R1 shock. So, for just a few $, I recommend it! :goodluck:
