    Hi Mendon (or anyone that knows the answer),
    I know this is an old post but I just did the mod. When you mention on changing the air volume, do you mean add more or remove the volume reducer and then add more?

    Note that if you don't also change air volume commensurately, it will change how the fork feels. Not a bad thing really, the standard volume reduction for 29ers makes the forks feel too progressive for me personally. I run them travel reduced, with effectively, 26" wheel air volume.
