I don't think there is 10 13/16" of travel...I think the manual's 275 mm spec is incorrect.
The Art of Reading actually

My bad... but I have a solution for ya. Put a bit of gum (or something very sticky yet removable) on the brake line retainer and go out for a ride (slow). When you get to the first stop sign slow until you are almost stopped and JAM on the front brake. I can bottom out my forks this way (I do it to trigger traffic lights here ).

Where's the gum?
