Question about Marzocchi Cycling

1 Answer

Hi, i have a pair of marzocchi dj3 currently on my bike and a pair of marzocchi dj2's on my old bike. i would like to change my dj3's back to my dj2 as more travel and suited to my riding uses. although the problems i face are that both steerer tube are different lengths. The dj2's steerer tube is about an inch or two too short to fit my new bike but the dj3's fitt fine is there any way to swap only steerer tubes from fork to fork to result in having a longer steerer tube on old forks please help. many thanks Sam Brown

The steerer tube is not listed as a separate part, therefore it can't be switched. Considering how critical it is to have strength at that junction it's not surprising that it is integrated.

SOURCE: how do you fit the Marzocchi

The easy answer is take the rigid fork of your current bike and replace with the Suspension fork.

The complicated answer is you may not want to run that fork, The reptiod which uses the same basic frame is set for an 80mm travel and your fork is a 100mm travel. So to get the bike to handle correctly you would probably want to replace the headset with a Cane Creek Angleset along with your fork, and even then it may pitch you to far back on the bike, but it would be interesting to try.

I would not suggest doing this yourself unless you have the necessary tools to install the headset, install and remove the crown race and install the brakes. That is alot of speciality tools and will be much less expensive to have the shop swap forks.

SOURCE: I have marzocchi 2001 z1

Marzochhi has a great website with the tech manuals for all their forks and other general instructions.

Here is the link to your specific Fork manual. if it takes you to the owners manual page just type in your model (Z1) and year (2001) in the boxes and your manual will be there. There are two versions of the Z1 from that year the DO and MCR. Also in the tech section are tips and other technical help.

Good luck with your rebuild project, go slow and follow the manual.

There are severall answers to this question (with videos) if you use a search engine for "rebuild marzocchi xc fork". You can get creative with the search terms.

As far as parts availability is concerned, scour the web (search engines again) or eBay.

Maybe hit the marzocchi site, register and ask them or search for documentation.

The best thing to do is take your forks into a bike shop that works on suspension and have them take a look. It could be low on oil and/ or air and bottoming out or it could be something more serious.

If you know the year of the fork you can pull an owners manual from the Marzocchi website. They keep a running inventory of all their manuals in PDF, this will also help to diagnose the problem and let you know what you will need to overhaul.

I have no shock pressure, how do I add pressure?


I would suggest you visit www.marzocchi.com and go through the tech section. There are manuals, videos and more on your fork. It is good to know not only the basics but regular maintenance schedules and when to take into a shop for an overhaul.

Specifically to add pressure you need a shock pump to add air. Going back to the website reference they will tell you how much for the type of riding yoiru doing and your weight.

This is most likely not the answer you are looking for, but I would highly recommend taking these into a bike shop that has experience with the Marzocchi's. These are fairly complicated and require some speciality tools, and extremely easy to do damage that will be an expensive fix later.

First red flag is that the rebound screw does not move. A fork overhaul is probably in order, replace the seals and oil, check all the screws too make sure they are not stripped, adjust the air pressure, and so on. The bonus is a shop that can perform this overhaul, will also be happy to show you how to maintain the fork and how to adjust everything properly, and if you don't have a fork pump, sell you that as well. Trust me, these can be challenging without knowing exactly what you are doing, I am highly trained and I still have issues now and then with Suspension Forks.

I have included a video with a Marzocchi tech guy explaining a slightly newer version of your fork, Yours is basically the same.

Here is the link to the Owners Manual for your fork. If this is not correct you can get any manual for any fork they have made off the Marzocchi website under tech.

Can u convert 08 marzocchi 80 mm forks to 100mm if so ?


You can convert to the longer travel fork (assuming that the 100mm fork is new and the steerer tube is as long as the 80mm you have on the bike now). You should be fine with the additional 20mm of travel, but be aware that it will change the geometry of you bike (the front end will sit higher) and it will likely take some getting used. Just take it slow and easy for the 1st few rides until you can be sure you are comfortable with the way the bike handles.
