How much travel are there on the sidesticks?

I heard that on early models of F16? there were no travel and the
inputs were all presure sensitive, but they changed it to allow for
some travel but it not to anything but only to make it more user
friendly.

Is there a common data bus to which the sidesticks are connected to to
transmit pilot inputs to the computer, what type of data link is this?
