How much travel does my fork have?
If you are trying to measure total travel you will have to let the air out to easily cycle the fork through the entire range of motion. Use a zip tie around the stanchion to make the measurement.

Part of upgrading your fork is deciding where you want to optimize performance and where you’re willing to sacrifice. In general, bikes will happily accept forks that are up to 20mm larger than their designers intended.
Those tokens reduce the volume of the air spring, they do not reduce travel. The piston does not ever contact the token.
Check your fork against the chart below to see if you’re running the correct number of spacers. “For more aggressive riders, I recommend one or two tokens at 160mm”, explains Cancellier. “For each 10mm decrease in travel, I add one token. For example, 150mm would be two or three tokens, 140mm three or four tokens etc.”
What is low speed compression?
Low speed compressions happen when you’re pressing down on the shock, like when you stand up to pedal. Or when you’re riding over gentle rollers, berms or dips in the trail. The shock is simply absorbing your weight against gravity in a slow, controlled manner.
