    Does my '04 888R have 7 or 8" of travel?

    How do I know the amount of travel my fork has? I always thought it was the 8" version of the 888, but now I'm not so sure...

    I'm going to sell it, and I just felt like measuring the amount of stanchion showing. From where the stanchions enter the lowers to where the "min" line is on the fork, there is sub 7" of stanchion showing, unsagged.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks

    Is it a OEM fork? Because they do come in 7inch. My buddy has a 06 888RC2X that's 7inch OEM.

    I don't think its OEM. But I think they made a non OEM version that was 7" as well? I dunno....

    I guess its a 7"?

    For those of you who know you have 7" or 8" 888's, how much stanchion is showing?

    Thanks

    If your the kid with the turner dhr from Trevyn, then its the 7" 888.
    If you're not living on the edge you're taking up to much space.
