    Pike RCT3 lockout not locking out?

    Just got my Yeti off the rack and noticed the lockout isn't working, just wondered if anyone else has had this issue too?...

    Had the same problem with my Revelations RCT3. This thread helped me solve the problem:

    Thank you.

    What I've found is I think I expected a true lockout which the Pike doesn't have, certainly whilst giving it the bounce test in the garage. Out on the trails it feels good though and it makes sense not to fully lock out on a FS bike. All seems well.

    I know that this thread is old, but I am still looking for a solution to this problem. The above referenced thread appears to show a dampener that is different than the one in the pike. Has anyone experienced this problem and found a solution?

    I am experiencing this as well. Lockout and LSC adjustments don't do anything. I posted up in the Pike 2014 thread. A few replies thought there was air in my damper. I don't buy that but will probably tear down the fork and take a look.

    If air in the dampener can cause that, I will buy it. I tore my fork all the way down and I noticed some cavitation sound when cycling the dampener. My best guess now is that some of those seals were due to be changed.
