    Whats Wrong???

    Ive noticed that there is play in my Dirtjumpers 3's lately. So today i looked at it more...I noticed right where the stancions go into the lowers, they wiggle back and forth. I have two questions...

    1. Whats wrong and can it be fixed?
    My bike manual says there is a 1 year warranty on complete bikes, ive had my bike for less than a year so..
    2. If my fork needs replacing, does this waranty cover it?

    If im not mistaken. Play with stanchions and the lower piece means your bushings are shot.

    Would a fork overhaul take care of that?

    But if your stuff has a warranty, seek that. If that fails, seek the help of whoever made your fork

    So skip the overhaul, try to get a new fork from Norco, then from Marzocchi, if those fail do the overhaul?

    thats what i would do. I mean you payed for the bike, and part of what you pay is for the warranty so you might as well use it.
