    So my fork has compression adjustment, right?

    I have a Recon air fork with MoCo damper. The fork came with a poploc remote but it does not have the compression adjustment knob on it. I was going to order that remote but wanted to be sure.

    I have tried moving the remote lever partway thereby turning the dial on the fork between lockout and full travel and compressing the fork but I'm not certain I can tell a difference.

    Does it lockout @ full compression?

    not sure what you mean. it only locks out when the dial is set in the lockout position.

    Sorry if I wasn't clear. I believe what the compression knob does it let's me dial the fork in between fully locked and full travel, so I can firm up the suspension without being in lockout or adding air to the spring. The problem is the remote I have (which attaches to a dial via a cable that is attached to the top of the damper and is spring loaded) only let's me choose between lockout and full travel. But since I have the motion control damper I believe I should be able to make fine tune compression adjustments.

    So I was planning on buying the remote with the compression adjustment knob but I wanted to be sure it would work with my fork.

    Close Ups

    For the remotes I have the one on top, planning on getting the other one with the dial.

    Well I am thinking it will work. I believe all the compression knob on the remote does it change the cable tension slightly thereby moving the dial on the crown slightly, which should effect compression (slightly).

    Well just to update this topic incase anyone comes across it in a search. I went ahead and ordered the adjust poploc remote and now I can dial in LSC.

    One more thing I'm curious about to anyone that has a remote damper...The spring mechanism inside the damper on mine is set to lockout by default, meaning I can turn the dial towards full travel but if I let it go it springs back to lockout. I find this a bit odd as I'd think the default would be full travel. So basically if I was in the woods and something happened to my remote or the cable, the fork would be stuck in lockout.
