    I have a Domain 318 180mm (22" axle to crown) fork on my '06 Coiler. I think it is a little to tall. I will be reducing the travel to 160mm as soon as possible. It is usable if need be. It might be really easy to reduce the travel untill you but it on the other bike. Then you could just change it back. It is super easy on the Domain and only $35 for the part.

    I have a Totem Solo Air on my 07 Coiler, however it has been reduced to 160mm. I did ride it for a day at 180, but it really slacked it out to much IMO, also it voids the warranty.

    Buy a 66 ata, it can easily be reduced to 160 for the AM and if you'd like extended later to 180 for the DH. It also still has the RC3 system. to save money there is even a 55 RC-3 (160mm). Also Dowst rode his for the longest time with an 888, at 170mm. Voided the warraty but looked like a beast.
    If it ain't broken... why the hell you fixin it!

    KONA rules!!

    If you miss the tranny... don't look down.

    I would expect it to hold just fine, but handling will probably be worse.

    I am happy with my 160mm Wotan, and I do use travel adjustment to 120 for climbs and some trails. Personally I would not feel any advantage in going for a longer travel fork..

    avoid any 66//55 ata, reliability problems seems worryingly common
