    How can I get 10mm more out of my Fox?

    If I only had 10mm more...she'd be happy I have a 2010 140 Vanilla 15Q. Any way to bring it up to a 150 with mods? I know you could adjust the older Vanillas.

    even at 140mm the overlap is a bit on the short side, which causes seals and bushings
    to wear out quicker. I do think though that IBIS specs a quick release version in 150mm or did for 09

    Let some air out of your tires/switch to bigger tires?

    Try looking at it with a different mirror, or from a different angle.

    Seriously, I would call PUSH. They will know for sure if less bushing/slider overlap would be OK.
