2018 FIT4 Remote Topcap Interface Part Installation

Required Tools

  • 803-01-209 Kit: Tooling: 2018 FIT4 Remote Topcap Interface Part Installation Set

Supplies Needed

  • 2.5mm Hex Wrench
  • 8mm Open-End Wrench

Non-remote FIT4 cartridges can be upgraded to remote via the installation of a complete FIT4 Remote U-Cup Topcap Assembly. This ensures the optimized topcap configuration with friction reducing features for the most reliable remote installation possible. FOX recommends PTU remote systems over PTL systems as they are optimized for reliability and reduced lever force. The FIT4 topcap "butterfly" valve must be matched to the appropriate lever/topcap interface parts.

Installation of FIT4 Remote Topcap Interface Parts on a FIT4 3 Pos or 3 Pos Adj cartridge does not convert the cartridge to the optimized remote configuration even when used with a 3 position remote lever as the standard FIT4 3 Pos or 3 Pos Adj topcap does not contain the U-Cup that optimized remote topcap friction.

The 2018 FIT4 Remote Topcap Interface Part Installation Set (PN: 803-01-209) is needed for installation of all 2018 FIT4 Remote Topcap Interface Parts.

There are different tools within the installation set for installing Push-to-Unlock and Push-to-Lock topcap interface parts. Please take note of the tool needed to install the parts in your desired configuration.
