    Marzocchi Crash Replacement

    I was just browsing around the Marzocchi website and came across this:

    If you have misused or abused your forks, or if you have landed improperly in the past, Marzocchi will upgrade:
    - Z3, Z3.5 or Z5 forks (30mm MY 2001-2002) to new model year 2003 DJI or DJIII forks
    - Z1 30mm (MY 2001-2002) to new model year 2003 Z1 FR 32mm at a discounted price, regardless of whether your forks show any signs of fatigue, damage, impacts, cracking, creaking, leaking, etc.
    I found it here at the bottom of the page:

    http://www.marzocchi.com/template/de...IDOggetto=2801

    So, has anyone done this? What was the price? I have an old pair of 2001 Z1 drop-offs that could prolly qualify as having 'seen better days.'

    Let's hear the expert opinions...

    I turned in a old played out 2000 z.3 80mm fork for a 2004 SuperT last summer. $515 delivered to my door, and the z.3 didn't have obvious damage. Great deal since that old fork, wasn't worth a dime anymore.

    Basically you can take your old fork to your LBS or call us directly. You will then send us your old fork and we give you a reduced price on a new fork. The forks offered will be a similar model to what you have. IE no 888 for your old Z5... But you could upgrade to a DJ, Drop Off, or Z1 Freeride...

    if you send them a fork, you have to get an RA# first......

    it's sort of how they track your account....

    Have you shop inquire with the tech department about the upgrade program... They will be able to get it going...

    i'd still get the RA#, if possible, and handle the situation personally, i've seen too many bike shops add on fees after the fork is received so they can make a quick buck or two at us riders expense....

    I would avoid calling in... If you went through a shop, continue to do so. So often orders end up getting screwed up because two or three people start calling on the same fork and the tech guys will just set it aside untill everything can get straightened out.

    thanks

    mille grazie to Brian Peterson, .wch. & Co.

    I will talk to my boys at the LBS this weekend. Since they are very suspension savvy I'll let them deal with Marz.

    Maybe it'll be the last big trip for the old Z1s since we are all going to the Winterberg bike park together on Sunday...along with the rest of western europe, i fear.

    hey, i just thought of something silly....that little blurb i mentioned it DOES apply in Europe as well, RIGHT????

    I do not know... I would have your shop call the distributor for your country for more details.

    No... The upgrade program is quite specific in the forks that are covered.

    Why is that?

    If you buy a new car and decide to change the suspension, will the manufacturer of the car offer you a deal on new suspension?

    if they also manufacture(sp?) the new suspension, my guess would be yes.....

    i can do it on my toyota......


    Edit: personally i don't see the problem, it's not like they re-use parts, what difference does it make what kind of parts are in the pile.......

    That's odd... Because if I go put a lift kit on my truck, Dodge isn't giving me credit for the stock parts...

    Is what he should have done is tried to work a deal on the fork at the time of purchase. Most shops will try to work something out.

    I had a '03 'zocchi EXR on my Kona that I dented the stansions on during a crash. Had my LBS send it back and got an '04 DJIII for $130. Not a bad deal.

    Wish i lived stateside !
    here in denmark i asked the distributor about the tradein program :
    An 2001 Z1 ECC QR20 plus 3000dkr (danish kroner about 460usd) would get me a 03 Z1 !!
    For that money I could get a 03 Z1 at closeout from a mailorder in England and keep or sell the old Z1 !!!
    i still wonder how much the distributor would pocket on that deal ?
    Cheers

    I have a perfectly working 2002 Z1 FR (with ETA or whatever) and it works perfectly, but if I wanted to trade it in it looks like it would still cost about $300-$350 for a new Z1 FR? Doesn't really sound worth it. I guess its only worht it for an acual broken fork.
