    Marzocchi 66rc 170 to 150mm

    I know there is a thread somewhere for this, but I cant find it... I need instructions to lower travel to 150mm, flipping a washer or something. Any help?

    Im having trouble removing the plunger at the top of the damper shaft so I can filp it over. One set of instructions says to simply remove the nut (red anodized in picture), but it proves to be not so simple. Any pointers would be helpful. I believe these were the same internals in the 888 in 05 so that knowledge might be helpful as well.

    I did the conversion on my 66rc. It was a PITA. I too had a problem getting the red nut off. Be patient and take your time, be careful not to damage it. Keeping working it. I think I used a spanner to hold the silver cap as I tried loosen the red nut. I thought I had gotten over my head with this travel increase attempt - But I took a break, came back to it and knocked it out

    Keep at it - but be careful...

    Got the travel reduced and all back together. Somehow I didnt set up the compression side quite right and after putting the top cap back on the knob does not adjust anything, just spins in place. Should the rod that is threaded into the compression sleave be threaded all the way in before putting the top cap back on? All the way out? Halfway? I rode it all day yesterday without any problems but a little adjustment would be nice.

    Thread it most of the way in, when you thread on the adjuster assembly, it will screw the remainder in. I had a keystone kops endeavor swapping the oil in my 888 the other day. Walk away and come back sometimes if you get annoyed. Dayum I need a shop/garage!!!
