Where to buy? Neoprene gaiters for front forks
 
I'd like to get all the protection i can on the F800's fork seals...

Does anyone know where to get some washable fork 'boots' that have a velcro strip? I cant seem to find them on any aftermarket sites...

Thanks!

I purchased a pair for my 650 GS at Sierra BMW in Sparks Nevada. They can be purchased online at: www.sierrabmwonline.com.

Try your local mx/motorcycle store, you may not find anything specific for the f8 but it's pretty much one size fits all. adventure-spec have some as well as others...

although they're not velcro.... i do remember on the mountain bike side of things you could get 'lizard skins' which were velcro.

These will fit the F800GS. They velcro on and off.

The abve ones are a great fitt. Velcro on and "secure" with a zip tie on top. Got mine fron Adv Spec when I got my engine guards and bash plate.

Kriega x3. Just got mine last week - went on no problem. I'm sure I'll forget they are there until I wash the bike after my next off-road excursion.

I have the touratech ones that are brand new still in the package. I'll sell them if you want.

PM if interested.

God Bless,
David

Yeah. I was just there about to pull the trigger. $30 + $9 shipping.
Saw an expired ad on fleabay for $30 shipped. Just wondering if there was a better source.

These are longer than other brands for better coverage and protection.

"Installed" mine today. Look great and will definitely help provide extra protection. "Wrap that rascal."

I hate to beat the horse, but at best fork gaters are a wash as far as protection goes, and more likely you'll be doing more harm than good in the long run with them on...
