    marzocchi 888 rebound adjustments

    i just had the 888 put on my v10; however, the rebound dial at the top of the right fork leg doesn't want to turn (right now, the rebound is ridiculously slow). i read the manual and it says not to force the knobs. is there anything i can do??? is there something wrong w/ the fork?

    try to remove the allen screw on top of the knob. There may be some debris blocking the knob from turning

    Use a little force

    with your hands only. If the knob has been turned a little to hard to the end of its threads it will 'stick'. Just put some oomp into it one direction or the other, it should go. The parts are all metal so it's fairly strong. Just don't get out the vicegrips!

    read the manual, there is a knob 'lockout' so people dont screw with your adjustments.

    Is this the correct way to address a mountie? I have looked in my manual for said lockout and can't find it. Please illuminate me with a page # or explanation. Thanks.

    sorry, swear i thought i saw it mentioned. Anyways, there are little grub screws on the side of the knob you have to loosen. If those are loose, then someone overtightened the knob in either direction; thats a bit of a crap-shoot.
