hi i have RockShox Recon Silver TK, TurnKey damper, Solo Air, alloy steerer, LO and reb adj., disc only, 120mm travel on my specialized camber comp 2011 can i change the turn key to so i can have a remote lock out. i asked at my lbs and they said that i could get it done but the inners of the for would have to be changed and would cost about 100 pound to do as they get sent off to some place that deals with rock shock? can i just change the key on the top?
When i die I just hope the wife doesn't sell my stuff for what I told her I paid for it other wise someone will be getting a mega deal!!!

    Totally pointless IMHO. Easy enough to lean and lock out if you need to, and less clutter on the bars.

    So that's a stupid time to be locking out. I use mine if I ride on roads to get to trails, if I remember. And only really because it's there, if I had no lockout I wouldn't miss it.

    yes there is a kit listed. cap spring and cable holder talk to your local Sram dealer about costs etc

    but i would look at getting a better fork.

    I'd use my hand. Nothing wrong with the fork save your money

    I have a poploc on my revs. Ive had many issues with it sticking and it has now broken altogether. The crown lockout is lighter and requires less maintenance, so I would keep your fork as it is
