Hey,

Looking for some information on servicing forks. I have Marzocchi 55R 140mm travel forks on my bike. One of the seals are leaking oil, how easy are these to replace lost oli and new seals? I have some experience in this but with my motocross bikes forks but it's much easier when you have a manual to walk you thro, I don't have one for these forks though.

Can anyone help or give me an idea on cost of a service at a shop?

Thanks
Chris :D

    I was quoted about £50 for a shock service but I think it depends on what needs replacing to a certain extent.

    It's usually pretty straightforward assuming you can get the parts, but I wouldn't want to get into a fork without knowing exactly what's needed myself.

    That's what I was worried about, with no manual I don't know what little surprises are inside that might fall out haha.
