Rock Shox SID RL - PushLoc delete

Postby dmwill » Wed Feb 01, 2017 2:53 pm

I have a set of RockShox SID RLs (on a 2014 XTC Adv 29er).

Looking to remove the PushLoc remote for a cleaner bar setup. Prefer to have simple knob on the fork.

How easy would this be and what cartridge/insert would I need? I spent last night googling and looking at parts lists, but there is no definitive answer. (I've serviced and rebuilt RS forks before, so pretty comfortable with DIY).

You need to replace the compression damper. The remote type has a return spring on the shaft so it opens when the lock is released. Non-remote ("Turnkey") dampers have no spring. It's not difficult to swap dampers, just unscrew the old one & drop the new one in.
I had a thought, but it got run over as it crossed my mind.

Thanks Duck.

Managed to narrow it down to this part number: 11.4015.544.270

In the meantime I've just removed the remote and adjusted (and trimmed) the cable so it's technically jammed open.
