650R fork dust wipers

11 posts in this topic

Hey, all;

Trying to find 46mm rubber dust wipers to replace the accordion boots on my 650; it'll be used on pavement.

Any info will be appreciated!

Thanks,

FJT

I tried those Frank. Got a rip in one and it went down the whole saver. I was like damn, I gotta tear the whole front end apart, again. No way, I ziptied the rip and ride on. All in all I'm not happy with the SRC, fork guard/skin setup.

Yeah, I've got a tear starting in one of mine too. :applause: Do the seal savers seem more durable??

why not just go without the boots --if you are only on pavement-it sholdnt be an issue. we've raced the Baja 1000 without boots, so it shouldnt be an issue i would think...

Just would be nice to have the rubber scrapers on the top to rub off the dirt and keep it looking sano.

if you buy the sliders don't they come with the wipers? i was going to try these to get rid of the 80's boot look. i also heard there is a fork brace kit that comes with these as well.
