Re-reading Neal's post.... note, the Gen3 has a cartridge only on the right side which handles all the damping for both sides. The left side has no cartridge. I strongly suspect the valving is different from Gen2.
The 2016A cartridge on the other hand will work. Same idea, only a cartridge on the right side. It does have a different part number..... there was a slightly different design in that the lower valve is now pressed and crimped in, whereas 2013-2015 was threaded in. Basically, a less costly way of making it.
IF you do end up with a 2016+ cartridge, make note there is a specific measurement on how you reassemble the fork cap, and that must be set properly unlike previous models.
We still don't know what they think you have to replace, yet we're all talking cartridge. I still can't imagine how a cartridge would have been 'chipped'..... if you can get more specifics, that would be helpful.
Keep yer stick on the ice....
