Nope it’s not OK, the only bikes we have that run 200mm forks are the Stabs. They’re a totally different animal than a 6” Coiler. You can take it on faith that we set the bikes up stock with the maximum fork travel out of the box so they’re ideal from the start.

alrite mate. thing is, all the tech guys will tell you it,ll void warranty, and upset the geometry, but , its your ride & if you feel comfortable go right ahead. personally i,d go for the 200mm 888rc... TOP FORK...

I've seen too many ruined frames where the guy "just was going to take it easy". The best you can hope for is your frame to be crushed like a beer can, the worst is to have some other parts (like the forks) ruined in the crash and maybe and injured rider also. I'm guessing you guys aren't' setting these bikes up to hang out on a patio somewhere so pulling off stuff that'll reduce the performance (floppy and inconsistent handling) and damage the frame (longer arm on the pendulum means more force fed into the pivot, in this case the head tube down tube weld) just won't fly.
