Question Anti-Dive Isn't

I'm keen to remove the anti dive things on the front forks of my '89 gpz900 because i've never managed to get the damn things to work properly.

Can i just put bleed nipples in the unit and the brake union on each side, effectively taking the antidives out of the brake circuit? I dont want to remove them and blank them off if i dont have too.

had same probs on my old gpz forks. the bike shop recomended me blanking them, he said removal is best for balanced fork action.
aparently its common. blanking looks better. a bit of polishing and some engraving.
unfortunatly i never tried bleed niples etc so cant comment on that, soz.

Lightbulb Blanking is the way

Had 900a2.Thought forks worked fine 'till i blanked em off(less braided hose needed).As an aside,looked cleaner as well.
