    on the lock out remote , there will be a dial that says "gate" turn that all the way to the direction opposite of the arrow. if that does not work you may need to bleed the lock out remote

    I'm pretty sure that gate does nothing on a Lefty. At least that was what I was told, I was also told RS and Cannodale are working on making it a lockout lever that doesn't even have the "gate". Someone please correct me if I'm wrong here, just going by what I was told and what I have noticed on my own fork.

    Sounds to me like you need to bleed the lockout. One downfall is that the system is locked out as default. It is bled just like brakes.

    You are right, but turning the gate can in some cases do something, it can make the lockout go from 'working' to 'not working correctly'...

    only bleed if turning the gate does not work... also dont bleed it just like a brake, you need to bleed it with fork fluid!!
