Has anybody experimented with Commando rear shock travel when replacing shocks? I'm installing rebuilt Koni 76F-1282's and they come with spacers above the bump stops. I removed the springs of both the Konis and the Girlings. With the spacers installed, they give less travel than the stock Girlings travel of approx 2 5/8". Spacers removed, the 2 7/8" travel seems to be too much as I hear sheet metal contact. Looks like the chain guard and fender are making contact. I'll have to cut the spacers, I just wondered if the Commando rear could benefit with a little more travel.
