    Issue changing travel on Fox Float 150 rlc

    I bought a new 2012 150 rlc with the travel was set to 120mm. I thought no big deal I'll pop it open and remove a 20mm spacer. When I pulled the air spring out I found no spacers.
    I am I correct to assume that this is just a 120mm fork?
    Or a 150 with a 120 air spring.
    Can the spring be replaced with a 140mm spring?
    Any help is greatly appreciated. Issue changing travel on Fox Float 150 rlc-imageuploadedbytapatalk1363587555.709805.jpgIssue changing travel on Fox Float 150 rlc-imageuploadedbytapatalk1363587589.954447.jpg

    Ferros,

    First lets check your measurements..

    With the lowers still off, install the air piston, top cap and inflate it to 100psi. Now measure the total rod extension. (When air is added, the spring compresses and the rod length extends)

    While your measuring things, what is the total rod extension on the RLC?

    Cort thanks for your advice.
    As it turns out nothing is wrong with the fork. The issue is my lameness. When I received the fork it measured 120mm as the original owner stated but I failed to check the pressure and just assumed it was spaced down. I measured the air spring and it was 160mm so I build the shock back up and sure enough 150 of travel.
