Traxxion will probably soon have one of their cartridge kits that wholesale replace the entire worthless guts.
But for starters, you need 1.0kg/mm springs, .95 if you do mostly street.

Did you go for the cartridge kit or the damper kit?

damper kit
didn't finish first day couldn't get bottom bolt out on one should be about 1hr to 2 hr job turned into prob 3 days
didn't think I would have to separate the fork but the oe plastic piece on the bottom of the damper has to come out
so no I need to get a seal driver or just have a shop knock them in
snowing in mn and I run a firestone store so we will see when I can get that done
overall a pretty simple job though
if I would have done it at work and had a seal driver it would have taken an hour
oh well as I said I cant ride it anyway

@gtmn, I am looking forward to a ride report after you get a few miles on it.

Got my AK20 Traxxion cartridge inserts installed and dialed in. A very worth while improvement over stock. Smooth, no mushy breaking dive, controlled rebound etc.... As a modern fork should behave now. This coupled with my Penske rear, this bike is getting better and better.
