    Hi a question for the Nerf or other KS users.

    Can you swap the the guts of a 30.9 150mm lev intengra into a 31.6 body and if so what would the cost be?

    Brought a new frame and would like to keep the 150mm lev but different seat post sizes :(

    Have shimmed before, it was ok but not great.

    And for the money we drop on these toys it seems a shame to dodgy fix like a shim when it could be better.

    YES to a Shim. Did that with my 30.9mm LEV, so I could use it in a 31.6mm seat tubed frame. works fine, hasn't slipped, normal torque, more or less.

    around $10AUD at Wiggle.

    Maybe some carbon assembly paste with the gritty bits in it would help as well

    To answer your original question, if u look at the parts list the internals and piston are the same except on the 27.2 model. So I think you would just need a larger outer tube, not sure of cost.

    I have a shim in my LEV and it works fine

    Cool thanks for the info. Will chase up pushies or what ever they are called now to see what the parts cost.

    May end up shimming anyways as a stop gap.

    Chase Link Sports instead ... Will save you some time.

    if you can get the longest shim possible that increases the contact area and should hold better. That said, KS don't recommend shims. But like peeps have said ... it has worked.

    but yep, presuming everything can be recycled ... It's just a matter of swapping out the mast. We've done a few of them.

    we have a few 31.6/150 masts in stock ... Email or call as I can't recall pricing ... Apologies

    Mast changes are ideal, yes, and I thank you for doing mine (may need another soon), but I have also used, and continue to use shims for years without issues.
