Marzocchi has issued a voluntary recall notice on suspension systems manufactured between July 10th and September 15th 2007.
The forks can be identified with the date of production on the crown.
The date is written in the format: T07D0710
T07 = Year 2007
D07 = Month (July)
10 = Tenth day of the month
If an unqualified mechanic attempts to repair the suspension system, the fork may extend violently, ejecting the top cap or spring with significant force. In addition, if a piston rod breaks after a jump, it is possible, but not likely, that a rider can fall from the bicycle and strike the ground, thereby sustaining personal injury.
If you have any questions, please contact Marzocchi’s UK distributor at: firstname.lastname@example.org
The number of affected forks worldwide is said to be 70.
