I'd like to get a Fox RLT 80 but can get a deal on a 100mm, 2005. Does anyone know with certainty, if travel on that fork can be reduced with a spacer like the older RLCs?

Thanks,

Mike

Page 10 on owner's manual say's YES you can decrease travel for the F100

It sure can, but instead of using the spacer- punch out the pin in the bumper, and move it up to the other hole. Less weight that way. Thats the method I used in my 2004 Float RLC's as I didnt have a plastic spacer handy.

Thanks...

I see the owners manual but it's not specific enough. Are they talking about all the "F" models or just the F...X models. I'd like to know for sure before I drop a boatload of cash.

Absolutely. I just bought a 2006 RLT 100 and had it set to 80mm to work on my present bike. I wanted the option of having 100mm if I ever wanted to put the fork on another frame.
