Monring all, im after a little advice please.

Will a RS pop lock fit onto these forks : RS Recon SL - 2010. (100mm coil)

If so is it easy to do?

My other question is, i see the above forks say they are available in 80/100 and 120mm.
Will this just be spacers that are fitted in the legs, ie can i make mine 120mm easy enough.

Thanks in Advance

Andy

    If it has a compatible damper the poploc can be fitted, if not you need to buy the whole kit including damper.

    Only way to tell with travel change is open them up and look for the spacers.

    IIRC the damper unit is £70 or £90 with remote poploc.

    Here is a link to the forks:

    Ever hit a big rock with your fork locked out? Well, we have too. With this patented RockShox blow-off design, the ride stays smooth due to the small bump compliance and unexpected hits are absorbed immediately even while locked out. TurnKey is compatible with PopLoc remotes.

    Does that sound like i need the damper - its a nice feature @ £30 but dont want to spend loads more on it tbh.

    Cheers

    the Poplock is just a remote lever. but for it to work the compression side needs to be spring loaded. if your turnkey is just friction then no you cant use a remote.

    Does the dial spring back on its own accord. I am guessing it does not.

    Ah no you are correct the lock out dial is not spring loaded it requires turning
    On or off.

    Thanks

    so no you would need to buy a suitable compression cartridge to use a pop lock lever.
