Was cleaning my bike yesterday and I noticed that the rebound adjuster knob has fallen out of my Rock Shock Boxxer Team forks! I have another from my other bike (Totem forks) but wonder if its worth putting in as I might lose this one as well. There is no damage around the leg or bolt, so it hasn't come out by being hit. It does say not to use the fork without this knob in place, though I guess this is only to stop dirt going up the inside of the bolt. Thought I might just plug the hole with something. Anyone else had the same thing with their forks?

I removed the rebound knob from my Totam and Argyle just for this very reason. I set the rebound where I want it and pulled them out. Put them right in my toolbox if needed.

Walk down any popular DH track after a busy race. I think I have a collection of around 15 at home.

I myself have never lost one. When you put it on, make sure you hear a really loud click and it feels solid.

BINGO!!

the problem, is if you adjust the knob (less rebound specifically), you can inadvertintly 'inclick' the knob....but if you push it on and it actually snaps in place, it takes a good bit to get it off.

I ride all the time with both my boxxer and lyric knob in the fork, and have not had either come off when not intended.
