Default Suspension Guru in North Is NZ

Does anyone have a recommendation for a good place to go somewhere in the north Island for a re-valve etc, that is knowlegable with Marzocchi forks and the PFP system. Idealy they will be good at setting up bikes for trailriding and not just MX. I live in Auckland and have a 2015 EC200.
I hear Linton at DAS Moto in Christchurch is ok, and Moto SR in Taupo advertise servicing Marzocchi's and i contacted Moto SR but the guy sounded a bit vague on it and wanted to do a $40 over the net suspension tune advice thing.
People on here that live in the USA rave about LT suspension services for Marzocchi's,thats the kind of thing im looking for.

Cheers
Rog.

Linton is good. The other obvious person is Robert Taylor at Kiwi suspension services in new Plymouth, the biggest suspension only operation.

Let us know how you get on m8...i have a 13' 200 that could use a service/revalve.Iv got it as close as i can stock but it could be better.the biggest issue is over aggressive rebound.i think im about 10/11 clicks in from stock to get it working with pfp at 1/2-1 turn from full out.around 80-100hrs from new it did loosen up a little.

Could try Mark at Mspec. He has done Sachs & Marzocchi forks on my gassers with good results.Very reasonably priced.

i might give Mspec a call and see what he says,i had a chat with Linton and he is a very knowlegable guy,nice to chat too and gave me lots of info,but he was honest to say these forks are not that easy to tune to trail riding conditions,as i gather from the many posts on the Suspesion Forum.
