Hi all,

I'm trying to get the correct spacer length in my 07 wee fork, and I realize I'm not sure if I need 1&1/4 in OD PVC or if 1 in would suffice.

A second related question would be whether I need to ensure I use schedule 80 PVC or if schedule 40 works fine.

Thanks in advance!

1" id schedule 40.
Yep. When you buy PVC, the spec'd diameter is the ID. 1" schedule 40 has about a 3/16" wall, so the OD is 1 3/8". That's ~35mm, close enough to the 37mm OD of the springs.
1 1/4" PVC won't fit in the fork tubes.
