    Dual Position Air spring in a Solo Air fork

    Can this be done on a 2014 Pike (will also apply to most Solo Air forks I'd have thought)? I know you can't reduce the travel on a solo air fork without changing out the spring (or cutting the push rod) but will the notch in the upper tube for equalizing the pressure get in the way of a DPA spring working in the fork?

    Has anyone tried this yet? I would like to convert my 29" 140 pike to a dual position.

    According to the tech document the CSU is different for solo air and dual position air.

    The current solo air forks from Rockshox use a dimple in the stanchion tube to equalize the pressure between the pos and neg chambers, whereas the dual position uses a different method to equalize the pressures.
    You will need to purchase a new csu for the conversion to work.
    I don't crash, I just have slightly uncontrolled dismounts!

    So I have part # 11.4018.010.117 for the dual air spring 29-160 mm travel.
    and 11.4018.008.320/322 for the CSU. How confident are we that would be enough to convert a solo air to a dual air ? On ebay the combined price for that is $600, so I guess for most people that wouldn't make sense especially if you pay labor. But also I don't see an actual 160mm 29'er Pike available, only 150. So if you one had the (solo air) 160mm Pike on teh Specialized 29'er Enduro, this might be the only current way to get a dual position 160 29'er fork ?
