Omg, SWEET bike! I had an 82 XT125. No balls and an inch less travel at both ends, but I honestly think I smiled more on that old bike than all my taller bikes where my toes barely touch the ground

Yes, that groove is to retain the seal between the box and intake tubes. I've flame should be on either side of the box. I usually lube posts with armor all to get them to slip in easier.

Springs and heavier weight oil, probably the cheapest way to go for about $130. Of course you could just do oil. After that, Race tech emulators or Ricor intiminators for about $150-$200.
