OK, I got a new set of Dirt Skinz to replace the tired old pair that came on the DR. I used the zip-ties that came with them to hold them in-place. When I dropped the DR off the center stand yesterday, both Skinz proceeded to pop right off the lower legs (in other words, the zip-tie didn't do its job).
Full Disclosure: I have a fork brace on the DR's forks so that the area to attach the Skinz is probably 1/4" to 3/8" (above the brace).
Should I think about ditching the zip-ties and going with a gaiter clamp instead?
Perhaps there's another trick to keep them from popping off?
