gaiter

  1. Transalp
    Anyone know of any compatible ones that will fit, as no-one seems to be selling any specifically for a 700?

    Bought a new pair of gaiters for the RD04 and just checked the price on the gaiter clamps / clips - £11:83 each!!! That's £47.82 for what are effectively 4 thin jubilee clips, for goodness sake. Needless to say, I shall be looking for alternatives.

    Hello folks, first post on here so go easy :thumb:. I'm in the middle of stripping back/modifying my 2009 XL700V. I'm looking for fork boots but don't know the size to get, I'm away from home at the moment so can't measure up myself...Has anyone any idea? Diameter and length to go for? Cheers Al

    I have bought some neoprene fourth gaiters and was wondering if anyone has navy experience of pouring then on? Do you need to take the forks out of the steering head to get them on? Or is there a simply slide in method from the bottom? Cheers in advance

    Hi, I read somewhere here that the AT fork is 43 mm diameter, what is the lower diameter and the lengthe of the gaiter (the fork rubber thing that compresses when you break), I am trying to find a suitable version that would fit the Varadero 2007 model of 43 / 63 diameters. Cheers

    Where would the best place be to purchase a chain and sprocket set and a pair of gaiters for a 89 XR600? I've called David Silver and he cant help with the gaiters, I'd just like to go to one store. Oh and I am looking for non standard sprockets... Cheers

    Well, would you believe it - went to get the TA out of the garage this morning to come to work, and there's a small pool of oil under the rhs fork leg. The oil seems to be coming out of the bottom od the rubber gaiter, so I guess it's a fork seal gone! The bike's only got 12k miles on it too -...

    anybody got / fitted neoprene "sock" type fork gaiters in place of the accordeon black plastic things? effectiveness? esthetic? will they slide on from the bottom or do you have to dismantle the forks anyway? Ta, :thumbup:
  14. Mechanical Advice
    'Tcher I noticed the other day that the fork gaiters on my TA are holed in a few places, anybody know a (cheap) replacement that doesn't involve dismanteling the front half of the bike to fit? or should I just cut them off & bin them? Ta MooN

    Hi, More than a few mentions have been made regarding the Cagiva Elefant by myself and others. Opinion has it that they are nice bikes but spares are just so difficult to find. My mate who owns the elefant I borrowed has to replace the nearside front fork leg as the chrome has just pitted to the...

    Hi All! Just phoned David Silvers for a quote on new Gaiters, and was told £60.00p+postage! Any ideas?

    Hi Guys Does anyone know where I can get fork gaiters for my 600TA. The Honda originals cost about £30 quid each and I think thats pretty costly. I've had a look around my local MX shops, but I'm having trouble getting the size. Has anyone actually bought and used after market gaiters on their...

    Was wondering if the fork leg gaiters from an AT would fit the Varadero. Can you still get them in black and do you think they would fit. Not sure how they would look but until I find out if they are available not worth looking into it too deeply.

    I'm renewing the bearings in the back wheel and overhauling the rear brake caliper. The front slider pin on the caliper (the one with the allen key socket in it) is stuck absolutely rock solid in its female cavity. I've used as much force as I can without taking a crowbar to it which of...
