It would probably throw the geometry off. see if lonestar sells a long travel adapter or look into getting new a-arms

Even if they did fit, the valving and spring rate would be WAY off. Buy standard travel Elkas for your bike or send your stockers off to Kevin.

He's right. Send your stock shocks to JOGACA, (Kevin) our shock guru. He will rebuild your shocks for your a-arms, weight and riding style. You may find they will be cheaper then your buddy price and end up with a better shock.

All we need is for you to come back.
Anyone spoken to Kevin lately? I tried texting him with no response.

No, haven't. But the messages actually go to his wife.
