    Remote Lockout Fox RL

    Hello,
    I`ve made a remote lockout kit for Fox forks, type RL.

    http://lockoutdeef.googlepages.com/Default.htm

    There are 5 lockouts made for some people,
    in 1 or 2 months I`ve another 30.

    Adaptable to the Fox RLC or RLT forks?

    For the RLT,
    not for the RLC, the problem is the red ring. There is no space for springs etc.

    It's good to know that it's possible to modify the Fox to go remote. I bought a RS Reba instead of a Fox RL precisely because Fox didn't have the remote lockout. Too bad for them but they lost a customer.
    Check out my SportTracks plugins for some training aid software.

    Good job! Make one for Talas and RP23 and I'll absolutely buy.

    Me too. If you figure out one for the Talas RLC I'll definetly by one.
    I used the remote poploc all the time on my reba. I needed a longer travel 3 stage fork that did not take forever to change stages via u-turn technology so I went with the Fox Talas RLC.
    I use the rlc in 3 ways. You can turn the lock supposedly just (on/off) about 3 millimeters from the locked position and it goes from fully locked to partial dampening. Then, of course further clockwise turn completely unlocks it.
    So, I need a lockout lever that is similar to the old friction shift levers so I can get that level of 3 settings control.
    Another remote lever I need is for the rp23.
    The other nice thing about using these shocks is the are the most tunable I have found by sending them for re-valving at push industries.

    Hey Deef,
    Again, let us know if you ever figure out the RLC I could sure use a remote lockout. As a 3 stage 100/120/140 It is a great fork for a remote cause super finicky people like it. I use at least 100 and 140 all the time and really could use a remote. I have a bike coming that has a remote for the back shock (DT Swiss XR). But, it really doesn't matter much if I have to reach down anyway for the Talas.
    Would it be possible to remove the compression adjuster ring to do the mod ?
    Thanks

    Hmm....
    correct me if I'm wrong but compression/lockout/rebound is on top of the right leg, whereas talasII lever is on top of the left....
    What one has to do with the other?

    I thought the problem was that the extra low-speed compression bezel on top of the right leg did not allow him to engineer the lockout lever. I guess I'm not really understanding what the problem is.
    (Of course that is a blue ring not a red one.)
    I could not really find a red ring.

    I wonder if he would just sell kit for the rlt and I have a guy in the states that might be able to adapt it. I sent a couple of emails to address above to no avail.
    Sure is a cool product !
    Edit more info. Seems I could be right, it is the compression knob that is the issue. Here is another thread with someone else doing the same thing only in carbon.

    I sure hope one of these really gets off the ground. I've tried to get Fox to step up before but it is such a small market compared to r&d and manufacturing cost of it they really don't seem to give a %^^&* about the extra finicky riders that look for absolute control and performance. Remember the old remote fox made for the rl ? There are some still around. Also, Jagwire made a remote for some rock shoxs and rear floats for awhile in 2005 but required allot of retro hacking to get to work and was d/ced.

    Deef - that looks better than most of the stuff you get Stock! Well done!

    Again - i think you could REALLY make it big by making kits for rearshocks...

    God this is so bad, profile wise, glad it's a prototype (i hope.) They should have just copied the poploc.

    Supposedly it is backwardly compatible with other 32 mm platforms (Hopefully the Talas. I'm getting tired of waiting and may rent some shop time to do it myself.)

    Probably the slickest solution for non-talas users would buy Deets remote system and use a poploc.
    (Deef's non-talas version sure is alot cleaner looking. )
    Who cares if the warranty is voided sending it for push valving does that anyway.

    Even with a new damper assembly I don't beleive it. I emailed Fox and will see if I actually get a response.

    @ Deef

    Any developments in making lockout kits for Rear shocks? I have two designs one of which is a retrofit and works but another one which would be far better however i lack the equipment to machine the bits....

    Update from fox, it will be a retro on SOME models. They had no more details at this time, so I would not hold my breath waiting on them.

    So nothin for the RLC huh- Got a F100 and thats the only thing that sucks- reachin down to open that thing back up- If theres anything you come up with to get around the compression knob Ill pick one of those up in a heartbeat- Gotta say too your setup looks really sweet- I know 3 or 4 other guys who have the same complaint on the same fork...I know theyd sink your praises also- Im patient
    Appreciated-
