ISO 2014 Gen 3 right fork cartridge / adjusting rods

Anyone out there have damper rod and/or rebound rod for Gen 3 that they want to sell?
I posted here previously on advice for suspension settings but nothing really helped, so I pulled the forks to have them rebuilt with RaceTech springs and valve kit
Don't know what the previous owner did, but this is the mess I found - see picture

I can't quite tell what you got there, assuming the right fork, but get the cartridge out and post a pic of that.... and I can't even imagine how that happened (yet) even if you wanted to. Fugly!


You are going to have a heck of a time finding a cartridge or the little rod that goes down the middle.... better check with Partzilla or Partshark..... new cartridge is not listed, so have to use one from a 2016... not awful but ~$113.

Does the 2016 Cartridge fit the 2014? (2014 Cartridge discontinued)
And/Or are the adjusting rods available separately?

Might be worthwhile to just have Racetech or Traxxion do a full build, itíll be expensive but probably not all that much more than you sourcing the needed parts and youíll end up with a really good front suspension. My .02

The 2016 cartridge will fit, if you get a new fork cap and nut. The only way to get a new rod is part of the cartridge assembly. The newer cartridge is a new manufacturer, the valving is now a "less expensive" pressed in method (prior years threaded in).
Reason for fork cap and nut is they are a different thread pitch IIRC.

Note - there is a specific way to mount the fork top cap with a 2016-up cartridge, that is (in the FSM), to set the 14mm nut at the top of the cartridge so it is 12-13mm of thread showing, then screw on the top cap, and tighten against the 14mm nut. In prior years, we installed the fork cap right down as far as it would go, then tighten the 14mm nut against it. If you this with a 2016 cartridge, the damping rod will keep the rebound valve closed, thus no rebound damping/knob won't turn.... DAMHIK. Has to be set properly.
