does anyone have any info on servicing these forks, and if i can get spare elastomers, my forks seem a bit spongy, i would be grateful for any assistance, also are these forks any good, i get the feeling they are on the low budget side, but i could be wrong, i am only keeping them as they are original to the bike, and the bike seems to be as it left the factory spec wise

they are budget forks.. i think they use springs rather than elastomers

to get inside them you'll need to remove the brace and then turn the fork legs anti clockwise..

the service manual is here..

if theyre a bit spongy id probably think about a new fork as finding new springs of the right length and travel will probably be very tricky for this fork!

Judy's or mag21's always look good on RTS's and can usually be found for sale on here pretty cheaply :)
