Cheers mates,

does anyone know where I could get them serviced? Air is leaking out completely in less than one day.



Kind regards,
Peter

Fancy doing it yourself. they are not the hardest thigns in the world.
Do you know where the air is leaking from ?
The air valve ?
The main seal ?
The nut in the bottom of the leg (never tighten this a lot, they snap!) ?

Pump them up and pop soapy water over the bits to find out.

I can do it myself, if I knew how. I am quite good at repairing or/and doing stuff myself.
I think I would need spare parts (like lip seals?). I can check on the weekend, where it
leaks. Does anyone know where to get tech PDFs?

That's basically them, seals and bushings are still available (or where last time I looked)

You don't need to go into the oil damper part (inside the stanchion) normally.

Technical Tuning manual is in the archive, worth a read.

Enduro do replacement fork seals, but the older 30mm ones turn up on ebay from time to time. Can't vouch for the Enduros, but they seem fairly popular by all accounts.

Try your local marzocchi dealer. Just the 30mm bomber seals (come as oil and dust set) and 30mm bomber bushings.

Try UK Bike Store.

They hold loads of spares for old Marzocchi's and if its not in stock they literally pop over to Windwave to get it!
