    Anyone have info on the current options for replacement or improvement of original 40mm Marzocchis on the early V11 Sports?

    It seems there are rebuild/upgrde items available from the likes of Traxxion Dynamics and Race Tech. Just curious if anyone knows of further options.

    This Andreani cartridge looks nice, but I'm not positive it's correct for this model fork or not...

    Jason, in my experience, Andreani makes you irreversibly mod your forks, and the ride is harsh for the US of A. I offer a "magic carpet" service for $550. Contact me direct email if interested; Info @ GuzziTech.com

    Thanks, Todd. I'm not horribly opposed to sending out the forks, but was just curious as to what DIY kits might be out there.

    For the record, it was advice from you many years ago that helped me get my stock suspension dialed-in to begin with. After some hair-raising experiences, I was seriously starting to contemplate letting my V11S go, but your tips not only made it feel like a new (and different) bike, but I've not touched those settings since.

    Now, at the bike's 20 year anniversary, I'm looking to do some (pre-emptive?) replacements and/or upgrades for the suspension. I have a fairly idea what I want to do with the rear (leaning towards the Penske at this point), but just now doing some recon on what my fork options are.
