    I dun think there's much room for more travel - I was just checking out my x1 the other day for the same reason.

    PLEASE do not do that!!
    you honestly will not nneed more than 6 inches if you can set the shock up right for waht you use it for. I recentlly went downhilling on an X1, and never bottomed it out of any drop, i had it loose all the way and rebound fast. dont worry about the travel, your fine with 6. your not doing 15 or 20 footers, other wise u would have a diff bike. but haros have strong frames, grinding it down would ruin one of the major pluses of the frame.just tighten your preload and make ur rebound like 3 clicks from the fastest. a friend has an x2, and he never bottoms his out just buy having it set right.

    wow and grinding a frame are that fvucking stupid?
