    The only way to increase travel on the 7point would be to increase the stroke of the shock. The current shock is 8.75" i2i and 2.75" stroke. No one makes a 8.75x3.0 shock. You might find a 9"x 3.0" shock which would add travel but it would also steepen the HA a bit. I don't think a 9" i2i shock would fit though.

    With the old links you'd be able to fit a 9" eye-to-eye, but I have no clue what kinda' ridiculousness could happen to the bike with a 3.0" stroke.

    The 2005 7points came with 9.00" eye-to-eye 5th Elements.
    Meh.

    I have an 05, that means my shock is 9x2.75? If I went to 9x3 that would increase travel to 7.6 ish? Anybody try this yet?
