Suntour Raidon convert to remote lock out

Postby cowasaki » 2 Sep 2018, 10:52pm

I have a set of Suntour Raidon forks which has the small blue knob to lock out the fork movement. I had never seen a remote lock out control until a few days ago and had a quick look on Ebay. The lever and cable is very cheap but obviously the top of my fork needs to be converted.

This is what I have under the blue knob:


This is the blue knob that I currently have to use:

Obviously I will need the parts to change it to cable operation and I believe that THIS is the correct top:

Has anyone done this conversion? Is that the correct top? What do I need? Where do I buy the parts?

I've found this kit:

Not sure, looking at the parts, if it's everything I need or even the correct kit. Obviously I need the lever as well.....

Thanks in advance.
