Sure, you can press the 1 1/8th" steerer tube out of the fork and replace it with a 1" steerer with an 1/8" bushing.
Just be sure to set up the hydraulic press correctly for the job or you might crack the forks crown.
I remove the lower work surface off the press, and use a long piece of 1 1/2" pipe under the crown to the floor and position the steerer directly under the ram, then GENTLY press it out do not rush this operation! Or you will end up with a broken fork.
If done correctly you can even use the old steerer over again.
good luck
