    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.
