Anyone know what the deal is with this plug? It's got a small hole in itthats threaded - probably for a fender. Wondering if this thing is structural. I would like to remove it so that I can run my Hopey Steering Dampener. Anyone know if I can do this and if so how?

Me too, Pike

I was curious about the same thing... Probably just pressed in, but who wants to pound on it with a big drift punch to find out? :( It's one of those things I would rather just throw in my tool box until I needed it.

Call SRAM/Rock Shox and be sure....

I THINK that I remember reading some where that the plug is removeable, but i would not swear to it. So call them, DON'T email, and ask. Their number is on the website, link "contact us" on the bottom of the RS home page. Like I said, I THINK that you can remove it without any adverse affects to the crown or steerer. But I could be wrong. The price of a short long distance phone call isn't that much to ensure you peace of mind or save the cost of a new fork. Hopefully some one else here is more certain on this subject.

He has done this surgery and posted instructions/pics.

When I got my Hopey, I called them up and spoke to Tim himself. He found a bolt which had a 5mm allen head, and that's how one would install it on a PIKE. It happaned to be the last one he had. Rumor has is that he's getting more of these bolts made.
