The relevant Marzocchi Fork like the 2000 X-Fly consists out of 4 parts :
- left slider
- right slider
- fork crown with integrated brace
- 2 cantilever bolts (which holds the parts together in the correct position!)
- 4 O-Rings (2 each side)
The cantilever bolts are the constructive detail to fit all together. If you take them out, you carefully can turn the slider out of the for crown. One O-Ring is inside the crown and needs to be places there (oil it!) before the slider will be pushed in, the other one is between the slider and the crown.
Be arefull : sometimes people have already went the ‘short way’ and have glued it together, so use some heating to be able to separate the forks parts nicely!
Please check Manuals yourself : https://dr-marzocchi.projectweb.de/MANUALS/Marzocchi/ – unfortunately the O-Rings will not shown in the manuals, but you can check the crown design related to 2000 X-Fly.
When mounting the Oil Seals put crease between the inner lips of the seals before pushing the stanchions in!
Important : Use a suitable tool to press the Oil Seal verticaly in!! If you don’t do that, the metal skeleton will bend.
Seals ‘Break-in Period’
“Some forks may require 5-10 hours of use before the fork fully breaks-in. After the bushings, seals, and other parts have matched to each other, the fork will move smoother. The tight tolerances make the fork last longer and work better.” (original text from Marzocchi Bomber Technical Information (2000) )
Knob / Dial Installation Instructions
Please glue the little screw of the dials with a little bit of middle hard screw glue. And use heat if you want to take it off than.
Please use the sticker only in conditions >=20°C environment to make sure the glue will work and make the tubes oil- and grease-free using isopropanol etc.
