Quinns on Edge Lane did mine a few years ago, but they really are quite simple to do yourself

Yea, do them yourself. download the instructions from http://www.marzocchi.com/template/listM ... Folder=126 and order a seal kit from windwave http://www.windwave.co.uk/
I did my junior t's in half an hour.

It's there but you need your year first then model, but search the forum (one you're on now) and a few threads will pop up on how to do it with added tips and other links.
You'll also find some setup docs in the Archive and Gallery.

Which year are they? though that makes little difference in the removing and refitting of them. Still nice to know as many of us have manuals for bombers kicking about so can supply you any info if you cant find it online
Date is stamped on the inside of each leg just above the dropout and again underneath the crown. Take that date then add 1 year.

Pictures are good :wink:
