    Im on the list for some of those for my 04 888VF's (tweaked with oil weight and levels but still not brilliant), there just designing an external preload knob as we speak so it wont have the Marz one pictured on the Orange 224 set-up

    why external. you setup pre-load once and never touch it. compression is what you need. why waste money on a VF?

    Because if you already have an 888 this would be much cheaper. Also if these cartridges feel anything like the boxxcarts then a fox will feel entirely different. And buying an 888vf and then buying the 999r kit would still be cheaper than a 40rc2.

    I would rather have the 40 though:D
