Yeah - Sealsavers. Not too tough to install and looks a lot better. I get about 2 years out of a pair. Rocky Mountain has Tusk brand "sealsavers" if you are on a budget.

I have the forkskins on other bikes and they work, will be getting some for the pig! Oh, they have velcro so you just wrap them around the fork tube and wallah, done.:mad:

BWB63's brace looks like a Superbrace. I've got one and like it.

The measurement is the diameter of the fork tube, not the length. The XR650R has 46mm tubes.

I've never had mine bunch up or need adjustment.

Rocky Mountain ATV/MC sells Tusk Neoprene Seal Guards for $9~$12 the long 44mm~50mm ones work on our bike if you have a fork brace (that is the setup I have). Some times it gets a little lump in it but, not all bunched up. Yes, Mine is a SuperBrace and it is has a machined in fork boot holding collar, Works great. I missed what the 70-80-100- exhaust? ??? I am a little slow and that went over my head.

Both without fuel that bike weighs two pounds more then a stock bike. Both full of fuel it weighs 18 pounds more then a stock bike but, with the longer travel CR500 shock and 20mm longer forks it "feels" much lighter.

I'll have to check this out. I thought they were water proof but, then again I didn't check. Whole reason for them is to have "0" dirt reaching the fork tube or getting to the seals. I have 100 miles on mine in the worst silt and sand so, I will pull them and check what got past the neopreme.

I'm using Sealsavers. So far so good.

Hawk,

I feel like I've asked you this before but what headlight is that and is it street legal in CA? (from the photo I'm assuming you are in SoCal)

Also, is there room between the headlight hardware and the front fender for a front fender mounted steering dampener?
