    Default Fox Fork de-remoting?

    Any Fox experts here? I didn't see anywhere on their website for a non-dealer to inquire about a tech issue and my LBS was unsure.

    I have a 2017 Performance Stepcast 32 fork with the FIT GRIP damper and factory remote top cap (push to lock). Four digit leg code is C8PM.

    I don't need/want the remote and I'd prefer to unclutter my handlebar. Do any of the Fox experts here know off hand if this fork can be converted easily to the top cap damping adjuster without having to swap the whole damper cartridge?

    Thanks a bunch!

    You'll need a new damper.

    NOTE: Non-Remote Grip dampers cannot be converted to be used with a remote lever. You must use a remote-specific Grip damper if utilizing a remote lever. Remote-specific Grip dampers can be identified by the black colored compression needle as shown in step 1 below. Non-remote Grip dampers have a silver colored compression needle.

    Huh - thanks Chase - I've looked at that page multiple times, not sure how I missed that part.

    you can use a cut down shift cable to override the lockout. shift head in the cable stop, hand articulate the lockout then tighten so it can't move. Simple solution used most of the time unless someone needs a new dampner/is adamant about no clutter on the fork crown.

    Mine is push to lock, so if I remove the cable its native setting is open/active. I actually rigged up a Shimano XT 8000 3-speed front shifter as a remote last week (I hated the ugly/clunky fox three position remote) and it works quite well and is somewhat stealthy.

    I don't use the lockout a ton though. The fork is pretty supportive when fully open doesn't bob or dive excessively even when I'm climbing out of the saddle.
