I need two sets of seals for rear shocks. The shocks are the large shaft size. Does anybody have some, or know where I can get some.

Rocket,
I called the California Marzocchi number and they said they don't support anything more than 10 years old. Bummer. Did you get a different story? If so, what is the fella's name so I can talk to him next time.

Rocket, Gary,...
I called Mike in the Moto Tech Division today and he told me they had 103 rebuild kits for the "AG Strata" shocks. They are $22.80 each. Is the AG Strata the name of the piggyback shocks from MC5 type bikes (76/77) or is the Stata a newer shock? Mike said one Penton restoration type guy called back and said the kits worked ok. Did anybody rebuild the MC5 piggybacks with these kits? i just want to make sure I'm getting the right thing. Thanks in advance for any info.

Some added info I found from an old tech manual:

Series 3, 10mm damp. rod for conventional shorter travel (verticle)
(have also seen some 2's)
Series 4, 12mm damp. rod for laydown position, should have an added shim in the stack for firmer dampening

The bulletin I have mentions "AG1" 10mm shaft and "AG2" 12mm shaft
no mention of "Strata" in the text, perhaps a model that they gave to the piggyback units in general?
I can make copies and fax if interested, just send me an email with fax # etc....

I found this link on a Ducati site, theses instructions are for rebuilding Strada Shocks. The instruction were very similar to the rebuild instructions for the Marzocchi off road shocks. I believe Strada Shocks are road shocks, the red shocks you see on ebay.

I have a 76 mc5 and a 77 gs and a spare set of shocks that are, of course broken in the most inappropriate place. One sets a #2 and the 77's a #4, all have 12mm rods. Now do they charge these "piggy backed" shocks with nitrogen or oil ?? 2kg/cm 2

Rainm Man Set your shock body at 20 degree angle,remove top screw out of piggy back fill shock till it comes out of screw hole. Oil level in the body of shock should be 1/4 in. from top of body.

I rebuild the Marzocchi shocks. I totally disassemble, glass bead blast the bodies, paint and clearcoat. Fresh seals, oil and charge with nitrogen. If you are interested, send me an email. $50 per shock plus parts. If you want the springs blasted and painted, another $10 per shock.
