Marzocchi forks small parts dealer?

So I have decided that I don't want the remote lockout on my Corsa fork. I have been scouring the internet trying to find the standard "TST micro" slider with no luck. Unfortunately, there is no marzocchi dealer locally for me to ask. Does anyone have any idea where I could find this part?

Yeah, its odd. I actually have the remote, and want to get the standard knob. You can get the old ones for TST 5 or 2, but I can't find the TST micro slider anywhere. I contacted Marzocchi about it, I will probably end up calling a dealer in St Louis. My guess is that since TST micro was new for 08, the parts aren't that readily available in the aftermarket yet.

I looked at Universal's price for the remote- Jeezuz! $130, I think I can handle still reaching down to lockout if'n I ever think I really need to.

Delay, put that pup on Ebay, someone's sure to want it for a better deal than $130.

Yeah, UniversalCycles has, by far, the best selection of product, but they are waaay too expensive, IMO.

So... in case anyone is curious about what the answer to this question is... this is what I heard back from Marzocchi:

--------------------------------------------------------------------------
the reply is:
--------------------------------------------------------------------------
You will have to chancge the entire cartridge uniot in the fork. it will cost you around $145.00 for the cartridge and about $50.00 for the knobs.

Thank you very much for your help. Feel free to reply to this email to contact the nearest distributor in your area.
Best regards, Marzocchi staff



Thats right... it will cost me nearly 200 dollars to get rid of the remote. I think I will be keeping it.
