Where's the gum?
Yeah...I sorta tried that the other day...but I couldn't get them to bottom out..guess I need to try harder. The Marzocchi's come with an "O" ring on the right stanchion for tuning purposes...instead of the gum trick...I've actually used chalk on the stanchion before to get the same info.
I was hoping maybe someone had their forks off the bike and disassembled for maintenance...and could give me a conclusive measurement.
