No problem.

As for no one talking to you... you need to have some patience. Not everyone is looking in this forum. It was only there for an hour before shocknut replied.

I don't think anyone doesn't like you or anything.

CR 125 has KYB forks Woody. Compression adjusters are on the bottom of each fork leg, rebound is on top.

Hmm.. thanks again. I didn't know. No wonder the CR125 sucks so bad. Just kidding.
