    They max out at 130mm. It's designed to work at 85-130mm.

    You can stretch them to 140mm with old pike parts, but it's not really worth doing. I would find a bigger fork.

    Not just that, but the tora 302 comes with an incompetent damper that doesn't know what to do with more than 100mm travel. It would still be a harsh, spikey fork that liked to hang out in the bottom of the travel once it got there. It would just have even weirder behavior with more travel to use poorly.

    If you want a bigger cheapo rockshox fork... get a domain, preferably a 318. Or a yari, if you wanna embrace 2014 modernity. This is a case where the time/effort/$ expended will easily eclipse the additional performance.
