As said, need end caps for SRAM hub to fit a Fox fork. I can see why SRAM would not offer an end cap to fit a competitors fork, but dang this is a problem I have to figure out. I really don't want to have to buy wheels or a fork and wheels. Hoping for a simple solution, end caps would be ideal. Cool

It sounds like you have a non boost hub and a boost fork? Sram and fox forks will take the same hub as long as they are the same (boost/boost or non boost/non boost)
If that's the case just look for boost adapters that fit your hub.

Not the same. SRAM started using these torque caps which only fit their forks, Rockshox. I ordered the end caps, which are not available in boost and had to order a problem solvers brake, end cap adapter kit. Frickin' stoopid is what it is.

All should be good later this week when my parts come in. I will update.

I wanted to update this thread in case someone else runs into this. I bought the SRAM endcaps and the Problem solvers adapter kit. Ended up not needing the adapter kit as the endcaps fit perfectly. Since the hub is boost, I did not need the boost adapter. I wish SRAM's info was more clear...

I'm going through this exact same issue. found a "bargain set of wheels" didnt read the fine print on the hubs.... torque caps on a fox fork. just out of interest, which end caps did you purchase? the ones listed above in his thread or the ones listed on sram's website?

If you need the Boost non torque caps for the Sram MTH 716 front wheel, google search that and you will find it. I ended up ordering from the LBS to get it so I don't readily have a part #.
