What model is it? RM125M and S were 1975 but from memory didn't have air caps standard. RM125S owners book list 210cc of 10w30 or ATF oil.

I think I did that to my "S" back in 1975 as an experiment. There were kits around to convert spring forks to air forks and from memory they ran up around 30 psi. You could use anything up to that but if the spring is a bit week are the rider is a bit heavier than the 60kgs Suzuki ideal rider. Start with 10psi and see how it feels.
