    Max psi for 2001 Marz. z5 Bomber

    I found the owners manual on marz. website, but couldn't find the max psi. A friend just bought this bike.
    and it needs air the fork badly. He's probably about 230lbs so I don't want to blow the seals. Looking for suggestions on psi to start at and a max. Thanks for any help.

    You wont blow the seals on a Marz fork, they are held in place with a snapring and designed to take high presures (Marz uses air volume copression to prevent bottom out on most of thier forks)..

    So you dont mention if the fork is a coil with air assist, or an actual air fork....

    If it is a coil w/assist, then just a few psi will make a big difference. @ 190 lbs I ran a few 'pumps' from a shock pump..could not even read the psi.

    For an air spring, hop on and start airing up....stop when the frok sits at about 25 - 20% sag in 'riding position'. Adjust as needed durring first few rides.

    Done...
