Default fork bleeder screws and orings

Where can I get some extra bleeder screws and 0-rings for my front forks? This is the third time this year I've lost one. Lucky for me I can take one off my ec250 for tomorrow's ride.
What is the size/description? maybe a hardware store might have them and the o'rings? They fit my '05 de300 with the 45 Zokes. Thanks in advance.

Why not buy some push button bleeders?

try an M4 x 0.7. I'm pretty sure that's the size.

Not to be a smart-ass; but, have you tried

MARZOCCHI U.S.A.
28476 Westinghouse Place
91355 Valencia, CA - USA
Tel: +1.661.257.6630

Also, there are a few suspension co's...especially in the mid-west that service the Zoks.

Jon & Jim over at the Tech section of the GasGas site seem to always have some answers...

Good luck.

I'm going from memory. What I did was measured it with mics and thread gauges. What is easy to do also is take one of the original screws to the hardware store and match it up.

Thanks guys. I do have speed bleeders on the ec250. I've hesitated getting them for the 300 since hearing that water can get by and into the forks. Probly not a big deal if I'm careful when washing.

I used to be a big opponent of fork bleeders for that reason. But, my 45mm 'zokes build up pressure just sitting there so I had to renege.

After much research, I found these. Chances of water getting is slim to none.

Ya, these are the ones I have too! They were'nt very expensive either. I think I'll go ahead and order another set. They're definetly convient. Just ordered another pair of ktm ones. No tax and free shipping thru usps.

48 Zokes are M4 thread just like the 45s and the WP forks. Measure to see if they will clear the bars when you turn the PFP adjuster, a discussed in other thread.
