Anybody ditch their Push-Loc or Pop-Loc bar lever and modify the motion control to be a knob adjustable at the crown by hand?
Getting tired of the clutter on my bars and while I use the motion control adjustment I can't find the necessity of a remote lever.

Could the spring inside be removed? Or is there a way to make it hand adjustable at the crown?

The MoCo unit has two versions, pop loc and regualr, Might have to get the regular unit but you cant turn the knob by hand?

God this comes up very often these days. I did it myself last week. You can unhook the spring in the Moco damper very easily by unscrewing it from the top-cap (reverse threaded) and unhooking the spring.

I then isntlaled the manual lockout compression knob, but you could do without. Just remember to add an o-ring under the knob to give it resistance so it doesn't turn by itself.

If you have a blackbox damper it's a bit mor complicated since it cannot be unscrewed, it needs to be drilled then riveted back into place.

Works perfectly, removed the spring and managed to get an o-ring beneath the knob. Thanks!

Someone here used an inline cable adjuster at the crown, cable stop inside adjuster to do this. I think there are pics.
