Need to reduce the travel on my CC DB Air IL by 1-2 mm to fit my frame. Haven't started in on it yet, and can't find any rebuild manuals/videos. I've got 1-mm ABS sheeting that I can trim to place around the shaft to reduce the travel. From the looks of it, it might be more complicated than simply removing the outer air can to access the shaft. Has anyone done this or rebuilt one of these? Any tips appreciated!

Add one or two thick o-rings to the shaft. It will also give it a soft bottom out.

Thanks! Is there an inner can that needs to be removed to access the shaft? Is it a simple threading operation to remove the shaft to be able to slip on the O-ring?

what size shock is it? I've had my 200x57 reduced to 200x54.the 200x57 and 200x50 is the same shock,but with a 7mm and internal spacer fitted.

it's 200x57 (long--shocking my 5010 V2). Any way to get source a spacer and grind it down?
Sounds like I'll have to remove the inner air can to access the shaft - is it a straightforward process to do that?
Thanks for the help on this, everyone.

no it's not straight forward,I had to get it done as part of a service.A canecreek authorised service centre will do it no problem,as it's a common request.Its basically a plastic disc.
