Vol pedal : 250k to 25k ?

Vol pedal : 250k to 25k ?
Hi dudes!  
I own a Boss FV-50H. Nice volume pedal, although not an heavy duty unit.  
I recently loaded my Strat with active pickups (EMG DG-20) and I noticed a loss of highs... every manufacturers recommend 25k vol pedal for active pickup and/or thru Efx loop. Is there any simple way to "simulate" a 25k pot ? There's 2 pots on the Boss, one to control the volume with the foot, and another one to control the min. volume. I dont want to replace both pots... any idea ? Should be simple but I'm no expert in tweaking pot values...
