    I'm pretty sure this is a possibility. Plenty of people have upgraded their Jr.T's to Supers, 888VF's to 888RC's, so the 66 shouldn't be any different. Give Marzocchi USA a call, they will dial you in on what you need and pricing.

    It may have a internal rebound adjust inside the fork like the jr t? I have the same fork as you and kinda wounder about the rebound myself. I'll explore and get back to ya.

    Dear Customer
    in reply to your technical question:
    Hi .

    I have a Marzocchi 66vf i believe to be 05 model with no rebound adjuster.

    My question is, will it be possible to upgrade the fork and if so what parts are needed and at what cost.

    Thanks: Alec Pym

    Hi Alec,

    sorry it is not possible to fit the rebound cartridge from the higher spec model. To adjust the damping you will need to change the weight of oil from SAE 7.5 to 10w.

    Regards

    Sounds like BS to me. I'd order the rebound HSCV cartridge, and see if you can fit it. You could simply switch to something like 2.5 wieght oil in the remaining pumping rod side to minimize the spiking effect caused by the SSV.

    The SSV damped Marzocchis have a pumping rod that attaches with a foot nut to the bottom of the lowers. The pumping rod pumps into the stanchion, and has a piece clipped to the end of the stanchion. The air topcaps are simply something to keep the oil from splashing out of the fork, and and allow air preload, and keep the springs in the fork. On the HSCV, cartridge damped forks, a cartridge attaches to the lowers with the same footnut, and the other end of the cartridge attaches to the topcap. You should be able to simply remove one of the pumping rods on your fork, and drop a cartridge in place.

    You would need the cartridge, the topcap to go with it, and the adjustment knob.

    Call Mike at Marzocchi TECH DEPARTMENT. He told me it could be done but was ass expensive if you did both cartridges.
