How to clean/oil RST Omni 191-T8 ?
Hello! I need to clean and oil my fork, but how to do it?
First - how to open the fork to clean it completely and oil it?
Second - what type of oil should I use to oil the fork?
Full name of my fork - "RST Omni 191-T8 50 mm".
Please help, I know, you know how to do it.
Most forks will use the same type of fork oil you can get from a motorcycle shop, but your RST is very low end, I'd say it doesn't even have any oil. Likely just grease.

In addition to the different greases suggested by the poster in the other forum, I'll throw out Rock-n-Roll Super Slick Grease.
As the poster in that other thread said, likely all you need to do is take it apart, clean and grease it really good and put it back together.
Hey man, thanks and sorry for the late reply

Can you tell me where do I put that grease so my forks finally work? It's been 5 years...
If it's been 5 years since your forks worked, then sadly I don't think any amount of grease is going to make them work. Very likely they have corrosion in the stanchions/bushes/upper tubes.
May be time to get a new fork I think.
I don't crash, I just have slightly uncontrolled dismounts!
