right i'm currently building a bike with Marzocchi shiver on it.
I'm in desperate need of one of those little black adjuster's
that fit the top of the forks with a small grub screw in it.

Sorry for the lack of knowledge but i don't know what they are called.

Thanks for your time and have a merry and safe Christmas

here is the link and it is the red bit on the top of the forks

Cant be that hard to fashion one out of some aluminium? Quite a simple shape isnt it?
A circular piece. Measure the radius of the other one for reference. Then file 2 flats. Stick in vice and pillar drill a grub screw hole in.

Thanks very much my friend but these are for
the Marzocchi junior t 2005 onwards , and these are far bigger than the
shiver version.

Thanks again for the link

That was the company's name I couldn't think of, are you sure these won't fit your fork.. as they look just like the ones on my Z1's.
The measurements also look the same, I thought all the preload adjusters would be the same from forks of this series..

Are you sure it was the preload adjuster and not a lock out switch ?

This one looks just like all the others I've seen
