I have my Marz Shiver, I have my extra-firm springs(210 - 250 lbs), its still WAY too soft. Now I'm not sure as to what oil it has in it, with that said IF i go to a heavier weight oil, how much of a difference can I expect? AND also i have the manual which tells you where to fill the oil. SO would more oil = more dampening and less = less dampening?
IF after an oil change I find that my fork is STILL way too soft for my liking, does anyone want to buy a Marzocchi Shiver? :D

Oh wait you have a 2003 ish Shiver. So never mind you don't have air preload.
Yeah, just not physically enough room inside the Shiver SC to give you the springing you need probably, Blazin. Hard enough on dual-crown Marzs to get firm enough springs for heavier riders. FreeRidin did bring up a good point - -any way to retrofit air caps to that one?
