This is for the 1999 fork,i wouldnt think there would be much difference

all i can see in it is a reference to the factory pressure of 3 bar :?

thanks for the link but didnt help it seems as the web page as been deleted or something i was told the old mazarcchi forks have a diffrent pressuer rating as most modern ones. it seemed to change when they stoped making them in Italy and moved to China or somewhere in Asia out that way

i would just adjust the air untill you have a 20mm sag when sitting on the bike. (zip tie round stantion) that will be a good guide. i have had loads of Marz forks and their air recomendations are often wildly off.

Cheers
Pete
