Ok, I have read that a lot of guys who run crf100's in miniGP, put kx 85 front ends on them for better suspension and the disc breaks... sounds like a plan... but where in the do you get KX85 front ends?

You dont have to upgrade to disk. Try it with the stock drims and go from there.

BBR springs and when we were racing the KX60 with drum brakes, i just drilled holes in the brake housing for cooling and to allow the brake dust to escape! worked perfectly, just use some nice EBC brake shoes and you'll be fine, that bike isn't going that fast! save your money.. you could even install one BBR HD spring on one side of the forks to test at first, BBR's are pretty stiff and in some case too stiff.
