    Stupid question for 2005 888RC owners...

    This is gonna seem stupid to you,but I was scoping pics of the 2005 888RC,and I didn`t see a knob on the top of the legs for rebound adjustment.The Marzocchi site says there is a 30 click external compression adjustment,but it does not say anything about an external rebound adjustment.Where`s the rebound adjust?(I haven`t got my fork yet so I can`t look at it.)

    I have an equally stupid question about my 888. Which should probably be addressed to Zokie but ohh well...When I upped the oil level in my fork I decided to check the bottom bolts for leakage and make sure they were tight. So I throw the ratchet on and "ever so lightly" torque one side down. Seemed pretty tight. When I checked the other side it kinda spins freely and never really tightened up. No oil leak but I was a little concerned. Anyone know whatsup with this?? Or should I be concerned??
    You have bleed with Wallace.....now bleed with me!

    They all do that. It's the cartridge spinning on the inside. Turn the fork upside down and push down by applying pressure, then the cartride will not spin easily. Tighten the nut on the bottom as you're doing this.
