    NRS Question

    I have an NRS and got a 120mm fork for it.
    IS this a problem?

    Other people have done it, though many balanced it out with after market rear rockers to increase the rear travel as well.

    It will make your bike handle differently.

    Some people will tell you the longer fork puts extra stress on the headtube. As long as you have some sag, i wouldn't think that you are putting the frame at a high risk of failure.
    When under pressure, your level of performance will sink to your level of preparation.

    without increasing the travel on the via extended rockers, not sure how raising the front end, thereby moving the weight bias more towards the rear would affect the handling and the performance of the rear shock.

    I would like to increase the travel on my 05 NRS as well, but apparently, there is no one making the extended rockers.
