Default Rm80 fork psi

     

Hey, I have a 1993 Rm80 which has schrader valves on the tops of the forks. I have access to nitrogen to charge them if appropriate but have no idea what pressure i should use. Any tips or advice would be great.

Thanks.

usually no pressure, if the fork is too soft you should run more oil or stiffer damping

Yup - Kawamaha got it.

When was the last time you did a fluid change in the forks?

I've never changed the fluid on that bike because I got it as a gift and spend much more time on my yz250. I've just never seen what look like valve stems on top of a fork. They look a lot different than the bleed screws I'm used to.
