    Whats wrong whith my 888rc2?

    My fork was working great and then all of a sudden it started topping out really hard. The rebound adjustment doesnt work at all since this happened. Turning the preload all the way in doesnt seem to change how hard it tops out. I saw no sign of oil leaking out anywhere. Then to top it off, the compression dial on top of the fork got jammed and I couldnt turn it. Could this be part of the same problem. If I take it apart, will that screw up any warrenty issues with Marzocchi.
    Any ideas?
    Thanks

    this happend to my 05 66rc, at least the rebound thing. Basically the "pumping rod" or what ever you want to call it probably came loose from the top cap on my 66. I dont know if this could be possible on the 888 but it might be what is going on. Taking it apart is just like when you want to swap out springs. But if your are unfamiliar with the goins on inside a 888 i would just send it in. That way if something is really broken, they can find it, and get it fixed right the first time and do it quickly.
    Blaaah blaaah blaaah

    Thanks for the replies

    Turns out it was the "pumping rod" but somehow it came apart at the bottom of the fork, not at the top cap. That is a job for Marzocchi.

    Is there a way to fix this at home? I have the same problem with my new 66 rc2x...I have limited rebound adjustability, but I really don't want to be out yet another week...Anyone wanna trade a new 66 rc2x for a 2005 shiver in really really good shape???

    Unfortunately they're made not to be user serviceable, you have warranty or buy a new one.
