    More fork opinions???

    I am currently riding an Iron Horse Yakuza hartail with a Marz Z1 FR3 fork. I'm unhappy with the way the fork "tops out" so harsh when I bunnyhop or maual. I think I could hop higher obstacles it it didnt hit so hard when I pick up. It sounds like metal to metal. I am once again going to put hevier weight oil in it but I think I need to buy something with rebound adjustment. I was told the Z1 sport is the same fork but with rebound adj. but I'm afraid to spend $325 to find out the fork isn't much better than what I have. I dont get it, the fork is meant for freeride, don't most freeriders bunnyhop/jump things?

    Well I tried adding a little at a time but no significant difference. I think theres something wrong with the fork. It has 20wt in it now and didn't make much difference either.
