I just bought a 2002 m750SIE.When i bought it, it already had dp clip ons and a triple clamp.Problem is that the front of the bike seems to dive alot under certain hard braking situations.I was wondering if anyone could help me out with a bolt on type of mod?I already found the ohlins SBK's and the price on those are just ridicoulous...So maybe i can fit some adj forks from another bike on here.ANY SUGGESTIONS?

Does anyone know where to get a brand new or slightly used oem speedo for a 2002 750.Or maybe just the gauge cluster lens cap?

DMonster1,

You have non-adjustable Marzocchi.

Options, have them revalved/resprung for your weight and also do the rear; once this is done, adjust sag.

Those are pretty crappy forks, you can experiment with oil viscasity and levels, but I wouldn't spend a lot of time/money on them.
All of the good options cost money so unless you plan on keeping the bike for awhile, I understand your reservations.

Norm,

You're right, but, my experiment with thicker/heavier fork oil, didn't go that well, maybe it was the terrain/temperatures we've got in Panama, plus, the accident did bend one of the inner fork tubes.

But, DMonster1, you can always start by replacing your OEM fork oil with a heavier weight one, if this doesn't convince you, then, as Norm said, how long are you planning on keeping the bike? For me it was worth the $400+ I paid for the forks[used].

At the end, you decide what to do with your bike, keep us posted.
