I have a 07’ 66 RC2 and just had an oil change using the info in the Marzocchi site 205 cc of oil each leg but now I am not getting full travel. What is the recommended oil height when compressed with the springs out???. I weigh around 178 lbs with gear.

I am pretty sure the normal oil height is 50mm.

I have an 07 66 ETA and run it at 55mm on the damper side (stock 205 cc in the ETA side).

I also have several other Marzocchi forks and run them all at 55mm (they are all different ETA types) as I find it gives me a bit more range with air pressure pre-load as well as full travel on occasion.

P.S I weight about 168 lbs without any (thing) gear on.

Marzocchi recommends max 65mm from the top on the 66 series. I would recommend starting at 75mm, and if you get harsh bottom-outs increase the level by 10 mL per side until it stops. I'm 225 lbs and I run 60-65mm and use all the travel (too much oil and you will never get all 180mm).
