    missing switch on fork - need to find a replacement

    Hello all,
    I am at my wits end. I have a 2006/2007(can't remember specifically the year) Gary Fisher Kaitai. I've been told it has a SR NRX-6500 with lockout and 63mm travel fork..

    The issue is, on the right side of the fork there was a small purple plastic switch that controlled the locking of the suspension (locked/unlocked).. well.. it fell off and I can't find any local shop that can order/replace it.

    I was told that after a fork becomes a few years old that manufacturers stop making parts and their answer is to buy a new fork.. I really don't want to have to spend hundreds of dollars on a new fork when it's in great shape, aside from my missing plastic switch.

    Does anyone have any suggestions on what I can try/where I can go? I don't care if I have to order it online, from halfway across the world I would really just like to be able to lock my suspension again!

    Any help is most appreciated.

    Cheers,
    -Derek

    Thank you! That's what I was looking for. I went to SR Suntours site and I couldn't find any US contact numbers (although I did only look briefly).

    Just sent them an email... here's hoping!!
