Funky Forks

Hey all I'm rebuilding my 93' CR250 and I took the forks off. Interestingly enough one has no damping and the other one feels pretty normal as in i push it down and it comes back slowly. The other one feels simply like a spring. Lack of oil perhaps? Not really sure, don't know anything about this. Thanks in advance.

Yep, The one fork that feels real springy probably has no oil in it.

pull it apart and give it a check up.

Thanks I'll let you all know how it goes . In my manual it says to use a specjial Honda oil. Is there a generic oil I can use 10w40?

Any of the 5w should work good . You could even use mobil1 ATF.
