    I own a Marzocchi MZ3 and I'm just wondering how adjusting the travel works??

    There's a + and - on the two adjusters.
    What happens if both sides aren't adjusted evenly?

    Thanks.

    Gday mate,
    This is my first post but the '+' and '-' symbols refer to the pre-load of your fork. This is the amount of effort that is needed to make them go in. So if you want a softer ride, turn both knobs in the '-' direction and likewise if you want them firmer. You have to turn them at the same time or each fork leg will have a different spring rate, and could in fact damage them.
