    need help with my KS Lev

    The rubber gasket that holds the red KS dust cover over the spring on my KS Lev broke and I need to replace it. Can I just get an oring at home depot or do I need a rectangular gasket? Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thanks Ben

    have you guys tried calling them? maybe they'd ship you a couple. from what I've seen they appear to be a very rider/customer friendly outfit.

    I lost my actual red cap on the trail and KS actually sent me a replacement. Rick is great to deal with.

    Might want to put a little grease on that thing once in a while. The lube they have on them when new eventually dries up. It will make the seal on the cap stronger and less likely to fall off as well.

    And a tie wrap on the cap.

    Only to riders from the states.
    I lost my red cap on my local trail too, my local distributor is charging US$20 for that cap!
    Why will this cap lost in the 1st place, i guess you have to ride softly in the trail.
    This is my solution to replace the red cap.
    No advertising for KS now.

    Also need help here! Just got mine installed yesterday but I don't like my cable rerouting and want to start again this time with the barrel adjuster in a different location SO I need another cable. What kind of cable can I use? Will a regular brake or gear cable work?

    Also, like the other user above the o-ring that holds the red tab in place broke. I saw the link to ebay but do not know which size to order. If anyone can clarify this that would be great.
