got a 01 yz426 that i know the front end has been lowered and im replacing the seals i figured i might as well take it back to stock as i could use the extra ground clearance since im really gettin tired of getting hung up on trees, i know the springs are shorter then stock for sure so those are getting replaced with a extra set of stock ones i had lying around, but i also pulled the damper rod assembly apart where just above the shim stack was the normal spring(bottoming spring or somethin i think its called) then i would say a 2" nylon orange spacer, im assuming this is to limit the free length of the fork correct? i will need to remove this to get my full travel again correct? i would post a pick but my cameras broke, and tried finding it on some parts schmatics but aparently were not suppose to go this deep into out front end?! thank in advance.
