    Fox Fork Blue Air Cap Replacement

    I just bought a bike with a 2010 Fox Talas FIT RLC, 15mm Through Axle, Travel Adjust from 110, 130 and 150mm.

    The first thing I did after adjusting the air pressure in the fork was to lose the blue air cap. I've done some searching around and can't find any info on where to get a new one (plus a spare or two)

    Anybody know where I can get a replacement? Also in the time being does the missing air cap pose any problems besides dirt or debris from entering the area around the valve?

    Cover it with some air-tight tape and call it a weight weenie mod.

    That'll keep dirt out and air in, and you save 10g or whatever! It won't cost ya as much to replace either, and you wouldn't care if you lose it!

    I ordered 2 of these and realized these are not the right ones for my bike. I should have double checked. I'm going to call Fox tomorrow.

    Yea, with the TALAS knob, it's just like a standard schrader cap that fits in the center of it, not a big cap like that. It just needs to be thin enough to fit, and tall enough to get a grip on it, yet not so tall that it looks out of place. Preferably with some sort of rubber stopper/o-ring on the inside, to make it air-tight.
