I'm looking to try this fork out but will need to run it at 140mm.

Is it possible to adjust the air spring to limit the travel?

I have a feeling it would just envolve droping a spacer onto the air shaft.

I've emailed the UK importer and been told that this fork can't be shortened despite the fact that some info says it can.:rolleyes:

Features:
• 160mm travel (Adjustable to 130mm)
• Air spring
• TST2 damper
• 35mm alloy stanchions
• Colour,White

So does anyone know for sure if this can be done or not?

Part numbers and diagrams would be great if anyone has anything?

I'm pretty sure it's as simple as installing the right sized spacer. I know if you buy the fork new the 130mm spacer is included. I'm sure if you fabbed one up thats 10mm shorter you wouldn't be doing any harm to the fork. Use Delrin.

The UK importer is saying that the info I have is incorrect and it can't be shortened.

What I'm looking for is someone who's torn one down and might be able to tell me if it's possible or not.

I'm pretty confident you coul shorten it, if it's at all like a 44 which it most likely is, it would just be a piece of plastic tubing on the shaft opposite the TST leg. You can then adjust how progressive or linnear with the amount of oil in that leg. I`m 99 percent which is more then your UK importer
