    help identifying Marz fork for rebuild

    i need to rebuild this and im not quite sure what parts to look for.

    it was on a friends 09 Transition DirtBag but im not sure they are the stock forks. there is a RC2 sticker on the crown but i found a few different RC2's online.

    if anyone can help me with a year and model for parts that would be great.

    cheers

    2007/2008 66 rc2

    We had one on the front of our tandem.

    Seals are all you are gonna be able to find when it comes to parts, but even they are getting hard to find.

    Then there you go....you found what you needed.

    I was wrong....the 2007+ 66 RC3 bumped the stanchion size up. Also got rid of the pinch bolts on the dropouts.

    Should be a pretty straightforward rebuild. Very similar to the 55's I've rebuild in the past.

    As stated above '06 had the smaller 35mm stanchions so you'll have the same seals as the newer 55's

    Stock oil is Golden Spectro 125/150 (7.5W)

    You'll want to lather up the seals with slickoleum & fill the gap between the dust & oil seals with it as well, a little messy on the 1st few rides but keeps it running smoother longer.

    Only issues I ever had with my 55's is the RC3 cart would want to spin when I would try and torque down the bottom foot nut. I've dealt with it a 2 different ways. 1st was to pressurize that leg PRIOR TO ADDING OIL with the little air valve on top if yours has one. That should put enough force on the cart to keep it from spinning. After its set remove pressure & fill. Alternatively if you're VERY CAREFUL you can find an allen head bolt to keep the hex rod from spinning and torque the foot nut while holding that hex rod in place. But don't put much pressure on that rod,it's soft & you don't want to break it.

    Aside from that don't run any air pressure in these after they are rebuilt if you can handle it, if you over pressurize & try and remove psi oil will get shot out of the air adapter. Quite a bit of it lol.
