Fork Refurb.???

Hi Everyone,

I have a couple of questions that I hope you can answer.

After 20 years of BMXing I've finally bought a bike with an engine!!! so excuse me if I sound a bit dumb, I aint used to having a bike with suspension.

I've just bought a 95 XR650L and I intend to try a little dirt riding but first she needs a complete overhaul. The previous owner thought it would be a good idea to hand paint the whole bike matt black and she looks terrible !!!

I'm gonna be rebuilding the front forks first and I was wondering if anyone had any recommendations on which fork oil to use?.

Also, would you recommend uprating the front springs?

Oh one last thing, what psi should I run in the forks? I've removed the cap and pushed the valve and there isn't any pressure in there at the moment.

Any help would be much appreciated

Thanks for the info.

I think I will try leaving the fork pressure alone and see how I get on
