    heh, those are for the old style Bombers with the bolt-on arches. So unless you have the 3 piece bolt-on lowers (which you dont), the answer is no.

    What does the shock tower accomplish. Is this more about 3 inch tires?

    its called an arch, not a shock tower, and it's a replacement for those weak stock ones that always bent. I dont know if this one fits 3" tires; some do.

    Dang, the only reason I looked at this thread was to find out what on earth a "shocktower" was! Where did you come up with that?

    Hey, if they don't fit your D.O., I've got an old 98 Z-1 BAM that could use some love (& seals...& new stanchions)!

    Yea I just figured it had to do with tire clearance because he sure does love 3 inch tires.

    OK now that you're all done bashing me. That model is actually called a shocktower. Search it anywhere. Yes it is a fork accesory but it's called a shock tower. First of all I realized right after I posted that it wouldn't fit my DOT. I saw one on a 2001 Jr.T and was just curious. Thanks for Nothing.

    Just wondering but how would it fit on a 2001 Junior T. The only marzocchi fork it might have fit was the old monster because they had bolt on arches.
    Can you post the picture?

    all Marzocchis made before 2001 had bolt-on arches. This particular arch is made for 98-00 model year Bombers.

    I'm sure this is rare and all but your wrong. The 2000 Atom 80 had the new arches. The X-Fly and BAMs in 2000 were also the newer M-arch.

    What happened to no derogatory religious statements?

    I clicked this thread cause I thought it had something to do with the 'shocker' being applied.

    I had borrowed an old 2001OEM Junior T from a friend with one of those bolter-onner arch things
    It was tres flexy and was bent a bit. Probly what that one is for, stiffness
    It did clear a 3.0 tire.....that's what buddie had on it.
    Then Junior T's stanchion broke.

    NRTH SHORE on here has a Junior T with one of those archs
