4. Do you wish to change the travel?

Yes No

If you are the original owner and would like to go from 160mm to 170mm, you will need to re-apply the "Cartridge Tube Heat Shrink".

If you are purchasing a used unit, and don't have the original spare parts, you may require additional parts from the "Travel Adjust Kit" + "Cartridge Tube Heat Shrink" to change travel.

Unfortunately there is currently no way of identifying the spring rate of a Smashpot spring after it is removed from its packaging & installed.
