    Are oil forks better nowdays?

    Hello, back in -95, or was it -96, I bought a Marzocchi xc-600. It was good for one season then it started leaking oil. Had it serviced but a few months after it started leaking again. The year after same thing, I tried to add mediun springs, but the da** thing started leaking oil after a couple of months. Now it is placed in the basement, and have been there several years. How are the new ones? Any better, or was that just mine that was a bad production ex? Canīt believe that was just mine, think Iīve heard of people with similar experiences.

    I bought a Marzocchi last year, after 1/2 the season, all is still good, Im al little heavier 82 kilos
    (all upper body... ha!)
    I have heard people complain about rock shox's seals, but thats what Ive heard.
    the place where I bought the marz felt that they were better, but heavier than their RS counterparts

    Besides Fox Marzocchi IMHO are the best in the market. I have a 99 Z-5 my wife uses a 2002 Z-4 and I will soon have a Marathon. You cannot go wrong with a "Zoke."

    I was just wodering what other people experienced with their zokes, when I a couple of days ago saw my XC600 in the basement wondering what to do with the darn thing. It has keept leaking in my basement, leaving a puddle of oil on the floor .

    Thankīs for your replys, and good luck with your zokes.

    Get rid of it and go buy a current model year fork.
