2.0 or 50mm is the stroke as ddraewwg states, the usual default for shocks is 190mmx50mm and 200x55, the Mojo and my Moots use 200x50, if you have the the DT Swiss it even has Ibis written on it since it spec'ed for them.
Has anyone destroked or limited the stroke to 50mm on a non Ibis DT Swiss XR Carbon or XM 180 and if so could you explain how? My Mojo SL arrives in 4 days and I have a 200mm eye to eye XM 180 and would like to have it as a spare.
It gets worse than that. Not only will the tyre hit the seattube but this might happen:
Couple of points to add for fairness: It was the UK Fox importer that fitted the wrong shock (they didn't have the right size) to enable me to race in a big UK 24 hour event. Ibis (and Stiff, the UK importer) both worked quickly and fairly to get me a new frame (with new shock and all my parts transfered) in less than a week. Top service.
According to DT and Ibis the shock is a 200mm e-e, 50 mm stroke on the Mojo and Mojo SL. Normal DT is 200mm X 55mm. This could or would void warranty. Fox RP23 is 200 X 50.
I have had a DT Swiss shock on an older GT i-drive and it has been a great shock. Also have fantastic customer service. The following is an E-mail from DT Swiss. Notice the capitalized "Possibility". May not be worth the effort or cost.
"First of all thank you for your Interest in our Products.
Regarding your Question i can tell you, that we are Producing our XR Carbon Shock in a reduced Travel Version for Ibis.
Technically the XM Shock is the same, so there should be a Possibility to reduce the XM Shock 200mm to 50mm Stroke.
But to do this it would be necessary to contact one of our Suspension Service Centers, this can' t be done in a normal Shop.
A list of all of our Service Centers can be found on our Webpage."

If you do a search of the forums, there is a guy who goes by the name of elvis whom works for the Australian Ibis ditributor put a standard DT rear shock on his mojo. I think he put something in the shock to limit its travel from 57mm down to 50mm.
