    55 rc3 ti. Add oil?

    A buddy has a 2013 55 rc3 ti but says that it goes through it's travel to easily. He called Marz and they told him to 'add oil'. Chris doesn't know the fork that well so he didn't ask what side or anything, but mentioned '260'. I take it that Mars is recommending to add 30cc to the spring side? How the F does that help with compression? Shouldn't he up the spring rate? Thanks for your help, Fahn

    +30cc in the spring side will do very little and 260cc in the damper side will probably hydrolock the fork well before full travel. I have about 200cc in my damper side and it ramps up pretty hard in the last inch or so. I'm 180 fully watered and geared. If he's heavy, the spring rate is wrong and needs to be corrected.
    Nice KOM, sorry about your penis.

    What's the usual amount in the damper side? 100? Thanks, Fahn

    I'm not sure Marzocchi even knows, you need to experiment.
