I have a Magura Durin SL from 2009, and I'm wondering if it's possible to rebuild this from it's current 80mm to 100mm. What I'm after is 20mm higher A-C.

If the stanchions are 100mm then that should be a fairly easy swop.

The only thing you may require is a new rebound unit which has a longer piston.

You can tell if its a 100mm stanchion as this will be stamped on the bottom of the steerer tube under the crown.

Cheers

Thanks for the reply.

I can't find the stamp you're talking about, is it on the underside of the crown? On the tube part or on the crown?

I'm not sure though, wouldn't it be quite unlikely that a 80mm SL fork would have 100mm stanchions? I mean why would the top level light weight race fork be built with heavier components (longer = more weight) than necessary? Or this is perhaps common to do?

It will be on the tube part under the crown.

On the MY2010 and onwards, only 1 stanchion set was used. This covered Durin Race & SL for both 80 & 100mm.

This helps decrease the price of the component as they are only making 1 set of stanchions to cover a few models.

Ok, that makes sense then.

But I can't really find this anywhere. Just so it's not lost in translation here on my part, I'm looking on the underside of the crown, at the hole which is the lower end of the steerer tube? I can't see anything there, no letters or anything. The end of the tube is bevelled (correct english word?) inwards towards the centre (or however you describe this...).

But since my fork is a 2009 perhaps it has the 80mm stanchions? The Durin SL fork was new 2009 if I'm not mistaken, and if they from 2010 all had the same stanchions this means that the 2009 forks must have the 80mm stanchions, otherwise there would be no forks with these stanchions, and in the exploded view of the manual they do separate between 80mm and 100mm stanchions? Or am I theorizing a bit too much now? smile.gif

Thanks so much for taking the time to help me with this.

Hi,

I think that you will probably have 80mm stanchions.

You cannot change this to 100mm without replacing the stanchions also.

Cheers

Ok, as I suspected. Thanks for your time.
