Increase Travel on Shock?

Furbz's Photo Furbz 10 Aug 2017

Right so i am curious.

i know you can increase the travel on Lefty carbon shocks from 100mm to 120mm

 

i have a scalpel and am tempted to increase the travel

 

has anyone done this? 

 

Good idea? bad idea?

 

nb the 2014 scapel i have is known to be very "sharp" in the handling department.

so the slight increase in height gained by the increase should in theory make the bike less twitchy

Not Lefty related but,

I have done it with my RS SID and it defiantly helped.

Your gonna need special lefty tools and believe me if you don't know what your doing your either gonna brake a very expensive part or take for ever to do the job if you don't know what your doing. Best advice is to send i to someone who knows leftys.
