    '07 Marzocchi 888 RC2X WC

    Hey guys,
    I have a 2007 marzocchi 888 rc2x world cup with all the compression fully closed. But it seems to be just a tad too stiff.
    There is a stock Ti spring in it, and I'm 170 without gears.
    There is 7 wt. oil in it.

    Is there anyway I could get it just a bit plusher?

    I had a '09 888 RC3 and bottomed it couple times a day, which was great. Now there is always an inch unused on my fork, I'd like to use it.

    Thanks for help.

    You can tell you have the correct spring if you can achieve 25-30% sag. If your getting that amount of sag and can still not achieve full travel its probably because there is too much oil in one/both of the legs.

    why are the compression circuits closed? Or do you mean fully open?
    You probably want to run absolutely no pre load. I am 185 with the same fork.
