    RST 381r Help

    I'm brand new...

    I have recently completed stripped and had resprayed my Specialized Rockhopper and spent a further 400 on it buying parts and what not. As a result I've pretty much splashed all or most of my budget on it and cannot afford a fork upgrade. So....................

    Does anyone know if there is a fork upgrade / spring upgrade kit for RST 381r forks as they could do with a servicing and I'm struggling to find anything in the UK to sort my dilemma out.

    Thanks Muchly

    I emailed RST a few months ago and they said there are no upgrades for ANY of their products so good luck finding parts(I got rid of mine soon after and used an old manitou I had laying around)I had a 381 also.maybe Ebay or some such will have a fork for major cheap

    Save your money and buy a new fork as RST's aren't worth the powder to blow them across the street much less upgrading them.

    Thanks

    No problem, It might just be best to service them with a bit of elbow grease and save some for a nice set of forks. Can you reommend any dirt jump forks around 200 - 250?
