Default R3 drop

A quick question for all R3 owners ..

In the manual both dampers are build 59,5mm long, but I can't get my ridehight any higher that 6mm with that damper lenght..

Does any of you build the dampers without the internal spacers ?

I don't need a ridehigh of more than 6mm but I would like to be able to controll my drop with drop screws and not the length of the damper

(And the by the end of the seasone I won't be the wallbanger no more)

Update says not to use internal spacers on the R3

i have set my damper length to 62mm all round for faom use and find it to be about right i also put a single o-ring on the shaft of each shocker to prevent the theads damaging the seals if the shaft ever got that far up

Part #13 on the plastic tree for the shocks is a 2mm spacer that goes on the top op the shaft right under the pistion.

59.5mm is a starting, you can length the shocks accordingly to suite your need. For the R3, I don't think you need to put in internal spacers.
