    Hope

    i did it on my 11 spot, it was good but for me not amazing. set up flow 650b and a HD 2.35 it fit in my float 36 set at 150. it was very slack, 66is or a bit less. what the experiment did was get me to oder a Burner and go full 650. swapped the front built a rear and wow, what a bike!!! the spot with a bit of an edge. go for the conversion if you are curious it will work, but be prepared to think about a burner in the future, just saying.

    there is a pic of my spot in the burnt spot thread.

    Thanks Kreater,

    Yeah, kind of looking at the Burner too. Just trying to save a few$$$ I've got the 2012 36 Talas and would like to turn it into a float and drop it to 150mm

    that is exactly what i did with my 12 talas, float conversion and set at 150mm, seems to be the same axel to crown as a float 650b fox 150mm.

    Been running that set up on my 08 Spot for a couple years (at least) now. Love it, turns it into a super trail bike. I've posted several posts and pics over the years about this.
