Yoke Size Can't Post

I may have found the perfect rig... except the yoke size is a C and I need to be an A or B... is there anyway I can pay extra and make the yoke smaller??

The yoke is the hardes part to adjust. The actual backpad and riser covers are cut out based on the yoke size. It's not like adjusting the harness. You would have to rebuild the rig.

I encountered this problem - last year - when a junior jumper bought a Javelin with a "C" sized yoke.
I measured her - as if for a new harness - and FAXed her dimensions to Sun Path. The factory confirmed that she should have a "0" or "A" sized yoke.
Consultation with the Javelin factory confirmed that it was not possible to cut down the yoke, or shorten the main lift webs enough to make the harness fit, so she eventually sold it to some one else.
