    IB guys; How to service AM1 TST cartridge?

    Some of you said you went to a workshop there, wondering if you have any info on this. I'd like to put 5wt oil in it if it comes with 7.5wt stock, as most marzocchis do.

    I was told there is a Marzo maintenance CD that explains it all but have not been able to buy it yet. I think it was Bikezilla who told me that, you might try to PM him or wait a bit, big Z is always lurking around here! haha

    I've done it. Wasn't hard. Didn't need any special tools. I'm going out to try it now.

    I did it to mainly speed up rebound.

    I like what it has done to compression as well, made it much lighter, and it seems to fit my riding style much better. I like my suspension to peform best at high speed over very rough and choppy terrain. This seems to have been improved by going to 5wt.

    I didn't quite get it right though, I have to re-bleed/top it off again to get the TST working fully. The DS setting works fine, but the AM and CL settings are not quite working right.
