    Makwa fork

    Hello forum,
    I have a 2015 Mukluk, and I just purchased a Salsa Makwa fork for it. Besides the thru axle and hub adapters, do I need to order anything else for the switch? Any headset parts, meaning the fork race?
    First time here changing out a fork.

    Thanks!

    Carbon? You're going to need a compression plug.

    Ok, so I got the fork, but the seller did not include the 142 end caps to convert my hub to thru axle, or the compression plug. Is the compression plug an easy to find item? I wonder if a dealer would be able to sell just the plug? I know they are supposed to be a standard, included part with the fork.

    You can get any plug to work I'm sure. The 142 end caps are specific to your hub and don't come with the fork.
