How to hack an XTR front shifter into a nifty dropper remote.

This also works quite well with a remote lock-out (Fox) fork (... un-modified)
Oooh. Which shifter, which damper? Like, any Shimano 3x shifter and the 3-pos remote adaptor, or are we talking on-off lockout only?

There is a way to do it without cutting the lever off. I've done this many times, but never took photos. Theres a little rivet and a plate that have to come out in order to remove the other shift lever. Once you do this, it's an awesome looking mod. I can do them in around 15 mins with the extra faffing about the removal makes. If I can find an old front shifter, I'll post some pics up..
