I guess what some people do is take their high pressure pump and replace the gauge with a low pressure gauge, voila you have a low pressure pump.Ruinane said:What's a good shock pump (aside from a marzocchi pump) for a marzocchi Marathon SL? Would a fox pump work okay. High pressure pump vs. low pressure? I'm kinda new at air shocks so any advice on a pump to go with it would be helpful.

Thanks for your help.logbiter said:any shock w/ the lowest pressure guage for your uses will work fine. As ratt said, if all they have is high pressure (ie 300lbs), you can replace the guage for $10 to 100 or 200psi.
For accuracy, you want the lowest pressure that'll work for you.
if you look 'em, lots of the pumps are the same pump, just rebranded.
I have seen low pressure Marz pumps that go to 100 psi on the gauge. There are also 200 and 300 psi gauges. The wider the range, the less accuracy you are going to have between the notches on the scale. This will be problematic when attempting to determine the actual difference between 32psi to 35psi (if you need to do that for your fork).Ruinane said:Thanks for your help.
So basically the only difference between a low pressure pump and a high pressure pump is how specific the gauge is between the 5 and 10 puund marks? So if I went with a low pressure pump like a marzocchi pump, then it would work with my fox shock in the rear?
Tonight i finally got around to making pump that will actually work with my fork after guessing at pressures. Found this gauge at my local Harbor Freight Tools for $3. Unscrewed the bottom, snapped off the scraeder pin and mounted to my old skool pump. Works freaking great and makes a huge difference in tuning the fork. Messing with the low low Par pressures can change the feel dramatically and 2 psi difference in the pos chamber can be felt.loco-****** said:Anyone know where to buy guages?
