I've been having a clearout and found some springs that I know are for Bombers, but not sure what weight. They are 180mm long and would probably be for a pre 2000 Z1 or Z2. They have some surface rust on from years in the shed. You are welcome to them for postage. If no good you can bin 'em!

Thanks, looking for 165mm long springs in firm, think they were white and blue in colour for firm rating or red for x-firm. Fingers crossed :wink:

I`ve got `97 Z1`s that are still working nicely, but getting a bit saggy.
I think chain reaction still have replacement springs for around £25.

I had the same problem. Called them and spoke to them and he said he can get them in through Windwave, the UK importer for Marzocchi, in 6 weeks. Thats what he told me anyway. I didnt need them in the end so didnt order, but he can defo get them.

I hope you find some soon wherever they come from!

Dan :wink:

i did need the same springs for my forks, i contacted windwave direct, they had the firm ones but not the x-firm ones. they'd sold out of x-firm ages ago, hence why i had my forks up for sale as they are still too soft for me with the hard springs i bought instead of the medium springs that came with the fork.
