hello, I recently got a new bike, and it has an RST capa TL fork. The guys didn't have a manual, but from what I can tell, I think the pre-load is adjustable, but I don't understand the concept yet. So can please someone tell me what it does, and how to adjust it, and also how to do regular maintance, or best of all, to find a manual?

Thanks in advance

Dan

umm, ok to adjust preload it will have some dials you can turn on the top of the stanchion(sp? :confused: ) legs of the forks, or basically on the top of each side... it should say + and - and what way to turn it... theyre pretty basic forks i dont know if theyre exen serviceable really

ahh maintenance... well, make sure the steerer is tight and make sure that under the rubber boots is clean and dont take them off

preload is the ammout of load on the spring before its compressed so more preload will make it harder, less - softer
