Any suggestions? I'll try to increase the rebound and compression, and see how it goes. If that does not work, perhaps I'll tweak with the air gap and the weight of the oil.

There is a wealth of knowledge in these (now 143) pages. I also hear Ohlins makes a cartridge for the Marzocchi forks which could be a very interesting option.

This is from a previous post by Joe Bar in this thread that I used as a base setting for my MM.

  • Front comp damping - 16 clicks out from max
  • Rear rebound damping - 23 clicks out from max
  • Rear comp damping - 19 clicks out from max
It needed very little adjustment to suit my riding style.

This thread needs more pictures of our beloved bikes

These were added to my lady today.



These "Tappo Telaio" can be gotten from: Archimedebikes.
Communication with Archimede is possible in English and he ships fast.

Thanks. I can't see a preload front adjuster. So I play with fork oil weight and air column? Anyone know what is the co-relation between pre-load and these 2 factors?

Cheers.

Here are some pictures from Tasmania, Australia.
My MM now has 70,000km on the clock and gets used for a variety of uses.

In such a country, I think You should get a HP2E instead with good rear & front suspensions and the 2 sets of wheels.

Isotta High Windscreen full attack Light Smoked for HP2 Megamoto

Hi guys, you can try this high screen for you megamoto as I was directed from Isotta Italy staff,




www.euronetbike.net

It is taller and wider enough to take out the buffeting from your chest and pass it over your helmet.

hope it helps

Cheers Jon

I agree, except quite rare & hard to obtain here, very few available.

Perhaps you can transform your MM in a HP2E.

1) go for the front KTM 950SE parts (see Somedude) or
Specialthings one but ask for (?)2 front disks(?) ;

http://www.advrider.com/forums/showt...&highlight=hp2

2) change the rear Ohlins with the model S46PR1C2Q1
3) change the front light & mudguard with the HP2E ones

you can keep the oil cooler of the MM as this one has done :
