Does anyone know what Mantis used to do to Mag21's to take the travel out to 2.5"?

I know how to increase travel on the original Z2 bombers, and was wondering if it was a simliar thing.

you remove most of the top out sleeve

taking it down as low as you can , gives the extra travel

Rock Shox sold a Long Travel kit...essentially, it's a cut-down version of the bottom sleeve. It extends the travel to 60mm.

There are some on Ebay from time to time...if you are Leonardo Devinci with a hacksaw, you can lop 10mm off the ones currently in your fork...but they need to be cut PERFECTLY perpendicular and square...
