    RC2X guts

    Did anyone else see the short article in Decline with the cut-away of the RC2X cartridges? The article had a small blurb at the end that said you could purchase the carts individually for $200 and $160 up upgrade models w/o these features.

    I'll scan and post if possible tonight.

    Cool. So can you buy the carts and put 'em in a boxxer? You know, to improve it?

    Oh so we're back to Frankenforks again?
    would the 150 to 170mm travel adjust still function with the RC2x system?
    Faster is better, even when it's not.

    You get to be the guinea pig this time. I like my SL as is.

    That brings up another question. 'Zilla, what fork are you gonna put on your RFX?

    If the price is right and the product is available I'll consider giving the RC2X "upgrade" a go. Provided it does not require giving up the travel adjust. I don't plan on spending a lot of time in 170mm mode.

    What travel adjust? Are you talking the 66SL?

    SS yes The 66SL has travel adjust via the negative air spring correct? Any idea if using the so-called RC2X upgrade would change this? I'm not interested in converting the SL to a half coil fork. I'm just curious about the adding RC2X damping adjustability to the SL.

    Rene, the Z1AM won't be going on the RFX, it'll be going up for sale.

    ...Zilla, the SL already has the RC2 damper in the right leg. The PAR in the left leg (66SL) essentially acts like the second compression adjustment (high speed) of the RC2x.

    guys, according to the Marz. owners manual, the X adjustment, which is a high speed end stroke compression adjustment, is adjusted from the top of the left leg. The SL model has it's negative chamber in the left leg. I think a call to marz. may be needed to surely answer the question, but I don't think you can have both features an SL left leg. Just a guess.
    For what it's worth, the left leg on the SL has the PAR feature, which isn't the same as the X feature, but may satisfy one's needs.

    my understanding

    SS,
    I read the short article you are talking about. The way I understood it is that the RC2 cart is in the right leg of all the 66 forks and the left leg differs...i.e. SL has the Air cart, LIGHT has the ETA cart, and RC2X has the X cart. The RC2X model has the RC2 cart in right leg and the X cart in the left leg. This dosn't sound right because teh RC2X is all coil.

    From the article it sounds like you could easily turn the SL into a LIGHT, the LIGHT into RC2X, or the SL into the RC2X by purchasing teh different carts directly from Marz.

    I am still sold on the SL, and very pleased with fork thus far. I also purchased Skullcracks AVY and I am super stoked on that purchase. The AVY is a sick shock, with amazing quality. I can't imagine the CCDB being any better...obviously more adjustable but not better.

    Yeah, the same way it's always been with marzocchi.
