    Hey everyone

    i recently lowered my marzocchi 66RC forks from 170mm to 150mm, and find the forks a bit soft.. i have roughly 225 of 7.5 oil in there...

    so im wondering, are the springs in the 170mm forks different to the 150mm versions?

    thanks for any input :)

    The springs are probably shorter overall for the converted fork. What might be happening is that the fork is sagging the same amount it did before, but it is a greater percent of your overall travel due to having less travel. You may need a stiffer spring.
