    King 1.5 Devolution headset

    Has anyone installed a King 1.5 Devolution headset? I am wondering if I can still press the 1.5 cups in with my Park headset press or do I need to buy a special collar/ adapter? I also read that the King head lock system that comes with the headset does not work with Fox forks unless it is installed upside down? Anyone got any experience with this?

    Thanks for the help,

    Shaft

    I didn't press mine in so I can't comment on the Park tool compatibility.

    I'm using a Fox 40rc2 fork and the head lock system is used as it is intended with my HL.

    I did mine at the shop, pretty sure it was just a Park tool. I know it was not special. The super nifty head lock did not work on my 36 .

    I used the Park cup press w/o adaptors.




    It went quite smoothly.

    BZ,
    Did you use the King head lock? Thoughts on it?

    I use a Hope Head Doctor in all my forks.
    The king thing is slick but it won't fit in 1.125 Zokes, and who needs all that xtra hardware anyway.

    I am using the king headlock on my Fox 40 as well and I see no problems with it.
