Ok, the guy I bought my 92 kdx200 from wasn't to keen on maintenance. He "told me he just replace the front fork seals" , so far no leaks. The problem is they seem to soft. I have them adjusted to as hard as they will go, via turning screw on bottom of shock. Maybe they need some oil? How do I add oil to my shocks. The shocks are NOT inverted. they have a clicker screw on the bottom and a small brass screw on top in the middle of a large hex head bold.

Buy a manual, you wont regret it.
The stock fork springs are setup for a 130 lbs rider, if you are heavier than that than you will need heavier springs.
I use Mobil 1 ATF set @ 95mm and I weigh 210lbs, I can clear small doubles without bottoming.
