I bought 2 beater KX 80's. Both are 1989. One is a former race bike and has non stock Kayaba forks. These forks are silver with pink Kayaba stickers which run vertically. They do not have schrader valves on top(just a brass screw) or oil drain holes at the bottom. There are no spacers at the top of the fork only a single washer/spring centering device and there is some type of valve assem. below the spring which fell out on one leg when I dumped the muddy oil out.

Second question. Which forks: stock 89 or the other set will perform better for play riding with my 140lb wife behind the bars?

The valve assembly below the spring sounds like it could be Race Tech cartridge fork emulator. This was a common mod to many mini-forks, as well as KDX200 forks if you think they have been swapped from a bigger bike.

You can look at the microfiche for the various kawasaki models at www.buykawasaki.com maybe you can find a match.
