Milkman, you are to be commended. I purchased my (Long Blue) sealsavers last week. One of the absolute best investment's I have made in years. I was getting tired of having to clean out my seals after every ride because of sand getting wedged between the rubber.

I took ol blue out for a severe mud torture test this past Sunday. Afterwards I washed the bike and raised the skirt on the seals to take a peek...Hmmm no dirt...So then I dropped the dust covers....Man....Clean as a whistle....No leaks anywhere.

And the Blue matches the tank and fenders perfectly. They also sent me a set of large Trailer Logo decals, so that I could advertise the product. I'm sold, I'll never have another bike without them again...

Thanks Darin,

Bonzai :)

Dude, I've been preaching about these for years..

I love my NOJ fork seal protectors! Never leaked a drop of oil in 2/5 years!

These are gotta-haves in my book!

Glad you guys like them. I really do too. Ill send a link from this thread to Sealsavers. The guy I talked to when I bought mine seemed really nice and Im sure he would like to hear the positive feedback.
Plus I think they are priced very reasonably compared to other bike parts.

I also have the long blue ones. I haven't installed them yet. Still trying to get up to courage to start taking things apart. They look great sitting on the shelf though. Maybe this weekend.

freestyle111, They just slide down over the top. Pull your forks out of the clamps and slide them over.
I think their cheap enough I should have ordered 2 or 3 pairs in case I crash and rip the neoprene on a rock or something.

if i order 2 pairs one of my buddys will steal my extra if i crash and rip neoprene i'll mostly like need a new fork tube. if that were to happen i might just part bike out on TT.what do you think i could sell a used set of sealsavers for on tt.$49?

Hey Jekel, Hope every fit up good on the TTR with the sharkfin.

Im such an idiot. I pull right up next to you in the parking lot (not knowing what you look like) and your wearing a Yamaha hat. I look at you and say "Are you here for the sharkfin?"

Sometimes I amaze myself. *L*
