Question: Can the KTM's 45mm Marzocchi conventional forks be made to work okay, or should I forget about them and find some newer KTM USD forks and swap out the front end? Details: My '98 200 MXC has the 45mm Marzocchi conventional forks. The fork seals are leaking and need to be replaced, and since the bike is fairly new to me the condition of the fork internals are unknown. So I'm figuring there may be other parts that need attention inside. This means I'm at a decision point: invest some $$ in the forks I have, or spend the $$ on buying better ones. I've been searching around for information on these forks; some say they are okay, but not great, to others who say they are worthless junk that will leave you on the ground in a bloody heap. I have ridden on them a few times, in rocks they were harsh and deflecting off of everything, at the sand dunes they seemed great. I will mostly be riding at the sand dunes, with some occasional trail riding (Oregon style rocks and roots). I'm a mid-forties, 160 pound, experienced but fairly mellow rider, so no huge jumps or extended high speed running. Thanks!
