    888 Vf2

    I have a 888 Marzocchi VF2, it is Brand new and bottoming out on me alot, I am not hitting anything my Z I fork couldn't handle (nothing over 6 feet or so), so how do you make the compression greater? I have adjusted the fork, it is cranked up -

    Try adding oil or changing the oil to a heavier weight. Proper sag? If too much, you might need heavier springs.

    yo - i had this problem w/ mine - and went through hell trying to figure out what was going on.

    solution ended up - just add oil - heavier oil like 15 weight worked out pretty good for most riding and the fork didn't pack up - though i never tested it at N* or anything.

    my suggestion - unscrew the top caps - pull out the plunger like thing - add equal oil to both sides in small amounts - like - 1/2 a shot glass full - test ride till it works out.

    it is very easy - very fixable problem - don't bother w/ heavier springs - the rebound on that fork is so crappy it will only make it spike when you jump.

    good luck.
