While replacing my fork seals I found that a previous owner extended the fork springs with about an inch of PVC pipe. Can I just leave that out? I have to replace a handlebar bolt anyway, so I'm going to see if I can something metal to go in it's place, but if not, I think I'll see what happens if I leave it out.

If it was riding fine before you opened it up, put them back. When I put Progressive springs in my forks, they came with PVC pipe spacers for setting the pre-load.
Awesome, thank you for the quick reply. I was about to go to the pawn shop and dig around for sockets the same size to stick in their place. Glad to know the PVC is fine. Saved me a lot of hassle.
