I've just picked up my latest project and its got a pair of bombers on it which need a service and possibly repair, but I'm not exactly sure what they are so don't know which service manual to follow.



The stickers say z3 but that's all, there is no disc tab so I'm guessing they are 97 but can anybody verify this or correct me? Cheers

Check the back of the bridge and the inside of the fork legs for date stamps. My Z3.5s have them.

just had another look at them and on the back of the left leg is a sticker that says L.N.46-96.


Could this mean they are 96?, I thought bombers only came out in 97 though

Aha cheers for that, yep theres markings in both places and they both say 96!

So I guess they must be 97 forks which where manufactured in 96.
