    New question here. SuperMax lockout not working properly

    The red dial does not pop back up when pressing the blue button. The blue button seems to try and return to the lock position. Therefore, the shock does not lock.

    I removed the blue button and the red dial, applied grease and re-inserted both. It still does not seem to work consistently.

    Any ideas?

    See this a fair bit, it's not SuperMax related, just PBR related though.

    Crap got down underneath the red and blue knobs (water and grit generally) and has caused the actuation mechanism to get gummed up, possibly rusted the ball bearings, though I thought they'd switched to stainless at this point, the earlier were mild steel.

    Needs to have the damper torn down to access that piece, not a home job.

    Unless you require it, I'd ride it as is till you can be without the fork for a little while, then get it taken care of. Not a pricey problem, just to put your mind at ease....

    Thanks ...

    Thankfully the lockout works now. Seems like cleaning and a little grease solved the problem. At least it worked during two hours of riding today.

    Next time I bathe the bike I will definitely cover the PBR and keep it dry. Guess I will just have to hope cr_p does not get in if the trails get nasty.
