Default pouring fork oil,wrong adjustments

     

my 93 cr 125 blew the fork seals.i knew it was comming because the top and bottom adjustment screws have no stop.they spin forever in any direction.they were like that when i got it 3 weeks ago and i took it out for a real ride todayand almost instantly went to hell.
what do i need to make them to where i can equally adjust the?
i have the fork seals and manual but i don't know if i need new screws or new pieces inside the forks.

If you're adjusters turn forever then something is broken inside of the forks. You should have a suspension tech look over the internals, if you are not up to it yourself. They can replace the seals for you as well, oil height is critical on most forks. This is not a easy job, so If you have no idea what you are doing you may risk really botching up the job. You will need an assortment of specialty tools to do this. Good luck

thanks for the info!!i am very mechanically inclined but,this is my first time owning a dirt bike.unfortunately i am unemployed at the moment and can't afford to have someone else do it.i believe i am smart enough not to screw it up.i just don't know the names of all the parts.i am by no means a professional mechanic i am purely self tuoght.to me it's worth trying my self and if i blow the seals again then i'll swallow my pride and let someone else do it.anymore info would be greatly appreciated.thanks!!!
