    no. it will throw off the handling too much and be over forked. there are people that like to over fork trail bikes, but i'm not a fan. I have tried this, but on a different bike. if you search you'll probly find several threads on the topic

    One option could be to reduce the travel on a burly fork to 170. the big burly stanchions and wider axle (the stanchions of a marz 66 are like 1.5 cm wider apart than on a 180 fox float) is almost as important part of the equation as the extra 20mm of travel, IMO
