Hi , I was thinking about an upgrade for my fork let me know if this sounds good or should I stick with what I have.
Currently I am running a Marzocchi 2001 Z1 MCR with ETA . All in all a good fork but sometimes I feel it might be too big and too heavy. I really like the ETA feature and the easy maitenence for oil chages and spring swaps. This is a must. I like to do all my own work as we don't have any really good shops that I would trust opening up my shock and mucking around.
I am riding a 2002 Enduro FSR with a Float RL on the back. Sometimes I will swap that out for a Vanilla coil over that I have for more travel and a linear rate. I am 180 lbs and ride agressive XC with no drops bigger than 4' ~ 5' .
I wanted to upgrade my fork last year (2003) to a Vanilla R Forx but after a bit of chatter about breaking drop outs I held off. I dialed my Z1 in with an oil change and spring swap.
I am also concered about weight. Marzocchi "CLAIMS" the Z1 MCR is 4.3 pounds - I really don't believe this I think its higher - I have never weighed it.
Would I see any benifit upgrading to an MX Comp or PRO (with eta on both) or would this be a downgrade?
I know I'd be going from 130mm to 120mm other that that can anybody give me some insight?
What is the differnce in valveing? weight? would I be able to change the oil and spring as easy on the 2004 forks as the 2001?
