GIANT YUKON - SUNTOUR LOCKOUT FORKS

Postby Tin_Hat » 28 Jun 2012, 5:26pm

Can anyone advise whether it is possible to replace the lock-out on a 2007 Giant Yukon? It had (until recently) a dial type lockout on the forks but this has now broken off and I wondered whether I can just buy a new lockout to fitor whether I have to replace the forks?

Here's a pic from Giant;

Suntour do supply spares, so if it's just a lockout lever/knob it should be do-able. Suntour forks are imported by Greyville Enterprises, I'd suggest finding their website, using "contact" to ask for your nearest dealer, then ordering via them.

As an update, I ordered a new lockout from Greyville for £8.95 incl VAT and P & P.

Fitted it to the bike and ...hey presto, it works!

Thanks again to Newtface for the advice
