Convert to remote lockout?

I purchased these forks: ... UTF8&psc=1

I have seen remote lockout levers for purchase, but not the actual caps which the cable attaches to at the other end.

Does anyone know if these forks can have the cap swapped over for a remote lockout version?

Thank you all in advance.

    It’s not just a matter of changing the ‘cap’. The internal spool also needs to be changed.

    Why do you want remote lock out though? It’s not hard to reach down and turn the lock.

    Yes, I was referring to the cap and the internal mechanism. I have no idea how to find out if it is possible or not.

    I know it’s not hard to reach down, but still easier from the handlebars :D

    You have to change the complete damper assembly, its not difficult (it just unscrews out the top) but whether its even available for those forks I've no idea.

    One less cable, one less thing on the handlebar, one less thing to break. And for a fork weighing 1.99Kg, you don't need the extra weight. I've tried both and the fork cap seems much easier.
