Marzocchi fork springs
Does anyone know where I can get heavier springs for the Standard Marzocchi forks?

I enquired with Racetech and never got an answer.
in any case, I've decided on Bitubo. It should be out by the end of november.

Yeah, I've found Racetech difficult to get a hold of at times... I have a call / email into them for springs for my 2012 Multi and haven't heard back either.

Dunno if they're the same but I have Marzocchis on my MV Agusta. I was told by a RaceTec service tech that they share the same springs as the Honda 954's - which opens up a whole heap more options (rates). I've not tried them myself (yet) but it may be worth looking into.
BTW - NA Marzocchi distrubutor is right next to my house and they were freakin' useless as an information source. Here's the website of the guy I spoke to - he was super helpful and readily gave information Teknik Racing

FWIW, the aftermarket RAC50L comes standard with 10N/mm springs and Marzocchi have part numbers for five different rates from 9N/mm to 11N/mm in .5N/mm steps (basically divide by 10 to get kg/mm). The 1098 and 1198 came with 1kg/mm springs stock, so I'm guessing the 1199 likely does too. Using the 1098 as a base and a semi-wet weight of 390lbs, Racetech's pointing me towards .9kg/mm springs at 155 without gear; less for street and more for track, so a good middle ground.
