Does anyone have the Seal Savers that is flashing at the top of your screen? If so, what size? It seems that if the bike is dropped on a rock, the long version may prevent a knick in the fork (been there, done that :)).

I've run the long ones for a year or so. No problems yet. They do protect the forks and seals somewhat. I laid the bike down and gashed one of them on some ledge rock and the fork underneath was not damaged (It was not a very hard hit though). All of the guys I know that use them think they are a good investment for $15. The folks at Seal Saver suggest that you roll up the bottom 1/2 inch when washing the bike to eliminate any chance of trapping dirt under there. I think the size was 1 3/4". The blue ones are not the best color match. If I had it to do over again I would have ordered black. Best of luck.

Unfortunatly, i think since they have gotten more popular the price has increased to $22 a pair.

My suggestion? By a pair of the long ones and cut them in half. Now you have 2 pair.

I got the yellow ones to match my hurricane plastic. It didnt match at all. Wish I would have went black too.

Has anyone tried fork boots( by Progrip )? I've used these on 2 bikes and have been pretty happy with them(no forks seals to be replaced). Installation is a bit of work though

I've got the long ones. Had them on for less than a year. They seem to serve their purpose. I agree with Joel Gibson, the blue is not the best color match. I would go with black if buying again.

I'm trying a set of black shorties soon after my suspension comes back from MX Tech East (John Curea). You'll see a review soon thereafter.

Milkman turned me onto seal savers over a year ago....Before that I was cleaning spitting seals after almost EVERY muddy ride....Since installation not one leaking/spitting seal....I will never use anything else.

Bonzai :)
