What do think changing out the shock is going to do to the rear travel on this Chaparral? The stock sized shock is 7.5 eye2eye with a 2 inch stroke. I'm not sure what the eye2eye measurement is on the new shock in the pic, but it has a 2.8 inch stroke. I think it might be 8.5-8.75 eye2eye---or close to it. I do know that the bike felt awesome. It felt way better than my scream in the 7 or 6 inch travel setting. Surprisingly, the monster felt like a good match on there too--considering what the bike is used for. Do you think the Chap is still getting the original 6 inches of travel?
