i have an '03 marzocchi dj 1. while the fork itself feels solid, seems like it bends at the steerer under medium braking. under hard braking it bends as much as 1 inch (visually more than half of my pinkie). is this normal? the fork is for urban/dj after all. btw i use 6" discs and the steerer tube was cut to fit my bike at around 6.5in.

If you steerer is bending you've go something funky going on with you bike. More likely the stantions are flexing, but 1 inch seems like a lot of flex for a fork like that. I don't even see that much flex out of my 04 SID under hard braking, and I weigh over 200 lbs.
