I got air valves to drill and tap into the fork caps. A few lbs. of air (1-5) should be plenty to assist the painfully soft front end.
Back in the day air forks were a cool thing to add to your mx bike.
In time I'll have to play with the oil level and pressure to get things the forks as well as things can be

My setup might not be optimal but for the last ten years I've run 15W oil at 10lbs per leg. I my goal was to eliminate fork dive on hard street braking.

I use a mountain bike front shock pump to fill mine.

I rode yesterday for a bit. I have to say how much a stiffer front helped. ElBuro uses we 10lbs per leg which at this time is too much for me. Maybe after I alter fork oil height Ill need to add more.

I replaced my upper fork tubes with '85/86 YZ80 uppers, they came with air valves in caps. If you can find caps on that bay thing it save some drilling and tapping.
