Do you believe the damper rod from an NC700X would be interchangeable with the one on this bike? Both are 41mm Showas, and per the parts fiche, many of the fork internals have the same part numbers. This might be a dead nuts simple way to bump the front up to 6.0 inches of travel, especially if one was already going spelunking down there to install a set of cartridge emulators.
