    Got a quick Question.

    I checked the manual and stuff for my Marzocchi Bomber MX Pro fork,

    Either side is postive air, My question is, do I have to have the same PSI in either side, or can I get variable results by mixing and matching?


    Sorry- still new to air suspension.

    A few pounds difference shouldn't matter but I still believe you'll get the best results with equal pressures in both legs. It's what I would do.

    A lot of forks only have an air spring in one leg...so you probably won't have any issues if yours are not equal...

    lol

    although.....a new set of brakes, most likely Avid Juicies or something is in the future. I read the reviews and horror stores of the Soles. And after a good break in period, I still dont have much stopping power, I hopped on the trek the other day for fun in my driveway, and I almost got thrown off the saddle cause the BB7 has so much more power.

    Yes, before making adjustments to your bike, ask, WWDD.
