I thought similar to this unless these are 85mm?

I run 100mm sl and the exposed sanction is nowhere close to 100mm. I realise these have the negative pressure but that dosen't effect travel - does it? :?

They do have really short (nowhere near 100mm travel) stantions. Mine are SL's too but I havent played with the neg. pressure valve.
