I got a set of decent Mag20s with a bike I bought. They needed new air caps which I found but whilst stripping them, I noticed that the damping adjuster on one leg turns freely. When I checked inside, the long rod which links up at the bottom of the leg is slightly bent and has snapped off at the bottom. They have been forced. Anybody know what the prognosis is? Can they still be ridden / repaired or shall I throw them at someone for spares?

Grateful as usual for any advice - Thanks!

it is the long silver part that is threaded at the bottom and square at the top, right ?

dont imagine you could get one made , bit of a complicated piece

as for riding with it as it is ??

i normally use my mags with it all the way out anyway , so the one side may be enough to control it ??

just remove the broken part and try them

do have a spare set of mags for spares , will have a look at them tomorrow and see
