hello, I have a 91 KX80 , my front shocks feel way too soft, how do I recharge them, do they just take oil, or are they gas as well?? there a small screw on top of each shock, no valve like some of them just a sloted screw/bolt on each. any help would be great, thanks :whoa:

They aren't gas charged.

If you need a harder feel in your forks, you will probably need to get a stiffer spring.

That screw you see on the top of the forks is for relieving air build up from the forks. It should be done every once in a while, with the bike on a stand.

what about fork oil? could it be low, the guy i bought it from says there new fork seals, but it feels like theres compression, like no oil or something, i'm not sure, how can i check or change the oil??
