    Question - How to fill/adjust front fork on Specialized Comp FSR XC

    Do I just pop off the top plastic caps? Then what? Is there an air nozzle under the cap? Do I need a shock pump to do this?

    On the bottom of the fork I think if I remember correctly I may have seen some kind of bolt for a hex key. Should I touch this at all?

    Sorry, I don't have the manual for this bike and am new to mountainbiking

    What kind of fork is it? If it's an air fork you will need a shock pump.

    I do not know.

    I'm afraid to pry off the plastic cap unless I truly know something is underneath.

    They are Judy Rock Shocks

    i tried to pry the plastic things off but they dont go off i dont think.


    they turn 180 degrees and then make a clicking noise if i go any further

    i have no idea how to adjust these

    the bottom of them have an allen-key bolt on each of them

    how do i adjust these?

    Is it the Rock shox judy C? I think it's an internal spring coil fork, but maybe I'm wrong.

    Yes it says "Judy C"

    So, they can't be adjusted?

    I don't believe so. I think it's just a fixed internal spring, but you should wait for others to chime in who know more.

    i wouldnt touch those bolts... if it was meant to be adjusted, it would be easier to asjust than using an allen(hex) key.
