    travel change spacers.

    looked in the FAQs?

    there is an example there.

  • all travel spacers.

    pop them in the forks to reduce travel by 20mm per spacer.

    All travel spacers?

    Can be fitted inside the fork to shorten travel

    I think poor Nick posts this about 1,000,000,000,000 times a day, why should someone have to go into that forum, find the thread, and post the link for you?

    not wanting to appear clueless (and failing) but what FAQ are you refering to?

    I got my RLTs today and found the same spaced but there is nada in the manual that comes with them and the RockShox web site is a bit pants with keeping the manuals up to date, unless of course im looking in the wrong place :)

    Ahh thats good, although the item on there about spacers only shows a picture of them, but fitting guides im struggling to find. Youtube normally reveals something but no joy this time.

    Ahh got the right file this time. If you chose "Reba" under the Product manual/service guide you get the docs that come in the box that are useless. But next to that under For Dealers are the manuals with usefull stuff in.

    Manual blindness ;)

    I'm neither lazy nor helpless; I just can't find the thread detailing how to remove the spacers

    Why does every question asked on this board get met with a smart a** reply?

    I'm only asking for a little help
