I got a 216x63 R2C Air MY 2016

The shock total length is 216mm, IFP pressure is correct but i cannot use full travel. There always around 3mm unused space above sag ring.
So i took of aircan, with the included bottom (4.5mm) out i can compress only for 58mm. Without bottom out its around 63mm.

Suggestions?

If you can strech shock its ifp needs to be pressurised to 250psi. Then the pressure will compress counter measure spring and you will get those few mm of stroke. If after pressurising it still lacks stroke it need full rebuild.

i even forgot that thread until i posted new one haha

the counter spring i think was no problem because the total length was 216mm

with unpressurized aircan and i would sit down with all my body weight, i couldnt get more than 60mm travel

not sure if it was overfilled

i measured close to 5mm thickness and 63mm travel would be with 0mm thickness which seems to be impossible

so air shaft protudes only 58mm with uncompressed bottom out
