I recently overhauled a Manitou Back Elite 80/100, fork is working great!

However, the plastic knob for compression adjustment split in half and is unusable. I was wondering if any other knobs out there slotted onto a 8mm hex bolt like this one, and I could just buy a new one? It's secured with a tiny M3 bolt. Not a measurement that seems to be out there on any specs. The Yari knob kit looks like what I'm looking for, but can't verify it's 8mm.

I guess I could try to 3D print a replacement, but would prefer it an alloy replacement (like modern fork use) so this doesn't happen again.



Thanks!

I think I've got some. I've got mountains of new-old-stock stuff that we still haven't cataloged or got on the internt.
The Skareb ones are nice red anodised and fit the cap, but they need the inside of the lever filed back a bit to clear the bigger crown on the Blacks and R7.
