    RS-1 damper side 120mm, air spring side 100mm

    I got my 100mm RS-1 back from a service appointment and noticed that the damper side extends to 120mm while the air-spring side extends to 100mm. I can compress the damper side 20mm to get the wheel on, but I don't remember having to do this in the past. Can anyone confirm that it is normal for the RS-1 to have a longer damper than air spring?

    It seems like its torsional stiffness is worse than usual and I'm working to rule out any possible causes.

    Thanks in advance,
    Marc

    Normal. Damper is not position-sensitive. Dampers don't top-out anymore to help them function properly. Air spring determines travel.
