    how to lower travel?

    i have been looking for some information on how to do this. My fork is a z1 freeride 2 from 2004, it has 130mm and i was curious how to do this modification. Information on doing this to dirt jumper would work too, as i beleive they are very similar. I'd like for knock is down to like 90-100mm. also, would it make my fork stiffer? short n stiff, thats what i'm shooting for

    Yeah, it can be done but you will have to send it to marzocchi to do it for you.

    So give marzocchi a call

    that sounds too complicated and probably costs money, and there would be time off the bike If it is anything like the other forks i've changed oil on, don't i just put in a shorter spacer?
