No idea Ron. I got my local suspension bloke to do mine and he buggered about a bit with the valving but I'm not sure exactly how. He's good so I just poke a set of forks at him and grunt "You Fix" and he does!

For what I use the Turdio for they are fine but they're still Marzocchis which means they are less than crash hot. When I get all pissed off with them I suspect I'll start shopping for a set of legs off a Multistrada or some sch on the Bay of Fleas!

Thanks Pete, I'll pull the cartridge out tonight to see if i can rework it.

EDIT : Cartridge is out. It really is a piece of crap. Swaged / Staked together throw away jobbie. If I machine it apart, I could sleeve it and tack weld it back together with the Tig welder, But don't know if I could be arsed. What's the thickest fork oil they make Rolling Eyes Maybe some Carc oil would help Laughing
No, the mind wants to know what's in there that could be worn out in less than 20k Kms. Photos to follow Evil or Very Mad

Compression cartridge disassembled. Compression adjuster works fine as in it seats perfectly and won't allow any bypass. So the problem is in the valving.

The valve with different shims sizes to show how much oil can bypass.
