I have a Marzocchi Z.1 FR SL 2004, I started riding it and I noticed it tops out sometimes. Will adding more negative air pressure fix this? or will just breaking it in fix this? I have also just started using it.

He's talking about topping out harshly, not bottoming. I run waaaay more negative than Zoke recommends. On the order of 200psi. I also upped the oil weight to 15. The fork is a bugger to get the rebound set right.

Do you experience a loud knock, is that what you mean by harsh top out? If so, you have too little oil in the fork.

Adding to Neg Air Chamber worked!!!

No, I do not hear a loud knocking noise, I really only felt it. Anyways, adding more air to the negative air chamber actually worked, the knocking stopped. Thanks.
