Lyrik RC2DH solo air.
I’ve just been on to CRC to see if the required spacer comes with the fork so I can drop the travel to 160… this is the reply I got.
Thanks for your email.
Both the forks that we offer only come in the 170mm version and you cannot convert them to 160mm travel, you would need to buy the specific 160mm option.

If I can be of further assistance please don’t hesitate to get in touch.
Hope this helps.
No that doesn’t bloody help… confused now and hoping it’s just someone at CRC talking rubbish!!??Posted 5 years ago
even more confused now… just spoke to Fishers and they say that you could adjust models year 2010 and 2011 but not 2012 and 2013 you have to buy the specific model either 170 or 160 travel… and they aren’t importing the Lyrik RC2DH and that that fork isn’t available for unless you do an aftermarket conversion!!?? I am lost. and the bloke on the phone was an arse.Posted 5 years ago
Sounds like you need to get the RC2L DPA and to the DH conversion. It apparently works almost as well and it is easily reversible. Thats what I have done with mine.
What he means by convert them is get new internals, it looks like from this link that you can get solo airs in 3 different travels now. 160, 170 and 180! The bloke at fishers is telling you that you need to buy the 160mm spring. Its bloody stupid when they do things like this.
And comparing it to this link it looks like they have turned multiple pieces, that can include the all travel spacer, into one piece probably to save weight and increase stiffness .Posted 5 years ago

Lyriks just arrived at the shop!
dunno what balls Fisher were talking yesterday then… wasn’t doubting you by the way, just interesting how the very place that told me they’re not available supplied them to someone on the very same day. what model year are they? do you have a product code please?Posted 5 years agogravity-slaveMember
Can’t comment on the availability/travel but can confirm that the 2012 on, despite the dual laser markings on the stanction, the travel can’t be adjusted with a spacer, they need a new solo air spring assembly (or some good DIY).
Otherwise the ‘kick plate’ is free to float in the fork lower and can stick and activate the solo air valve. When the valve is activated, the air pressure equalises and effectively ‘resets’ the fork at the point in the travel the valve opens, so you can end up with something like 100mm travel and a massive negative air chamber! Not great – but top out is super plush 😉Posted 5 years agogravity-slaveMember
To be clear (or possibly pedantic), it’s not “as well” – you can’t use a standard RockShox spacer at all.
You need to replace the solo air spring assembly – or DIY a longer top out bumper that keeps the kick plate captive.
The damping side (sometimes referred to as a the cartridge) should not need modifying.
In my opinion this is a bad move – one of the awesome things on my 2011 Revelations is simple travel adjust.Posted 5 years ago
