How to disassemble SR Suntour xct-mlo fork
#1
Was given a 2013 GT Karakoram 4.0. Fork moves fairly well but starting to squeak and needs service. MLO works.

How do I take apart the MLO side? Lots of videos show the SR Suntour xct with a smooth blue lockout cap. It has a lockring and you have to pry it up evenly

Not sure if this one is also a pry up. The notches look the same on both sides. Wrench fits on the spring/preload side and unscrews fine. It can't fit over the mlo lever. I know they're low end forks but would rather service them.

Thanks for any info you can provide!

most likely you can just pry it up like the other MLO suntour cap. Try to pry it using a thin blade and pry it up slowly.
