Ask marzocchi for the soft steel spring from the 2008/09 888 RC3. This will require a spacer (they should give that to you), but it should work fine. The steel spring is also pretty cheap, the Ti springs are super-expensive. When you ask about the steel spring you might ask them to estimate the cost of the Ti coil. While it's not the same Ti coil for the 08/09 models, they were estimating well over $100, closer to $200 for the soft Ti coil for my RC3 WC model, not even close to cost-efficient.
