  1. Ciao Guest - we've been proud to harbor such wonderful Guzzisti camaraderie since 2005, for FREE. Times have changed, and so have the attitudes and expectations of far too many. Starting Jan 1, 2020, we will likely be shifting to a paid to participate format. You will still be able to read for free. This should alleviate all of the opinionated negativity that the free social media channels have created. If you are a donor or customer of ours, you're in, just use the Contact tab above if your account is not already promoted, or you can Upgrade your account once signed in. Or the Donate tab above is another option. We look forward to continuing this service to the Guzzi community, but it is not cheap or easy to host and maintain. We wish you the best for the Holidays and in the New Year.

    2014 V7 Special. Trying to figure out if I have Marzocchi forks. I was looking for the stamped "M" on the inside of the fork, but can't find where. There is some type of character that is raised, but can't make it out. Did all the Specials get Marzocchis?

    Cam 99.9% chance they are Kafia. Some 13's were Marzocchi, but most were Kaifa.

    It's tight to see in there between the tire and the inside of the fork, even with an inspection mirror. Some folks press a piece of silly putty or chewing gum against the inside of the fork, then remove it and look at the impression in a mirror. The M or K should be apparent.

    You can stick your index finger in there and press hard against that letter it will stay imprinted on your finger tip for a few seconds, works like a charm.
