    888 R?

    I have heard that the 888 R is much worse than the 888RC. i dont understand this because the only differnce is adjustability... right.?.... Also, is the 888R is a 2004 fork?

    It's the same fork, the 888r is a 2004 fork and had both rebound and compression adjusments/damping. I dunno, did marzo start calling the low end 888 the 888r this year?

    SSV vs HSCV

    I thought the R was Marz's lower spec SSV (speed sensative valve) damping verses the RC's Dual HSCV (high speed compression valve) which is the higher spec system.

    I have an RR which came OEM on my 04 Demo which has one of each in each leg.

    Am i wrong or am i right?

    no, the low end ones (ssv) are VF's this year... RC (hsvc) are the high end ones...

    last year, R (hsvc) was the high end and RT (ssv) was the low end...

    wow, i made a usful post!

    there is a 05 888r, but it's for the oem market... it's basically a 05 super t version of the 888 series. meaning that it has hscv cartrigde in one leg (rebound damper) and ssv in the other.

    no, 888 vf and rt have dual ssv ( i think) thus making a big jr t.
