The front suspension is Way too soft, and need help or an idea on how to make them harder or tighten them a bit.

Do you know what type of suspension you have? Most shocks will have two air valves under the top caps. You may need a special air pump to be able to put more air in, but that will harden up the shocks. Your local bike shop should will an adapter like that and they should be happy to top it up for you for free.

On the other hand, some cheaper brands just have a large spring inside and there's nothing you can do in that case...

Good Day to all,

I have a RST OMNI 181 CL front forks. same problem with one of the poster here. its too hard its not moving at all. i already dismantle ,clean and lube it. and test it it will not move when i seat on the bike and make some small jump.

unlike my specialized when i sat on it , you will notice there a movement due to rider weight.

Pls. guy need your help!
thanks,
Hardrockman
