I've been looking for some light forks and found some magura md100r's on eBay. The description says that there is some stantion wear and leaking oil but a basic service would sort it out.

Does anyone know how much a DIY service would cost and if it would sort them?

They're fairly cheap at £99 but I don't want to end up spending more than I would if I'd waited for a set in better condition.

Cheers stu

Stanchion wear is very rare on Maguras. They have to have been very neglected to get worn.
I would imagine you'ld be looking at £100+ or much more if the stantions need replacing. Magura don't encourage home servicing and replacement seals for newer forks are hard to find as a result, though Fox wiper seals will fit. Anything more and it's off to Magura.
For that sort of money you could pick up a nearly new set in fine fettle...

Thanks for that, I Guess I'll pass on them then.
I'll wait for a decent pair to show up.

Cheers
