DAMNNNN an 06 thread resurected LOL hey ROCKJOCK why the seal savers when you got good fork guards??? ive heard the downside of those is they rub the coating off the lower tubes. My suspension guy puts them on kind of a belt and suspenders approach. I dont think there are any coatings on the fork lowers, or should I say I have not had them coated. On my 440 the guards deflect roost and the sealsavers keep dirt out of the seal area.
