So my Transalp Gaiters have more holes than swis cheese and look unsightly.
So a few questions
1. Can I just remove them and not replace? Alternatives available?
2. How hard is it to remove the forks and put them back properly?
3. How hard is it to align them once back in? do they just 'fall...
Over the next few days i am going to fit new fork gaiters, now the bike is a bit too tall for me and i thought i might drop the the yolks about an inch to compensate, doe's anybody think this may have an adverse effect on handling ? or should i leave well alone?
I have just acquired a 1984 350, its running but I need the following:
Blue fork gaiters, replacement seat cover in blue, yellow race # backgrounds and maybe a headlight.
Also a PDF workshop manual, and parts book.
Could anyone help with useful links and info?
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?
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
Read some discussion on this issue, but can't find the tread. Where do I get gaiters 43mm/63mm and 195mm long of Honda OEM quality ?
Anyone fitted to Varadero ? Anything to look out for when disassembling the front legs, could they become different length / not aligned ?
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...
anybody got / fitted neoprene "sock" type fork gaiters in place of the accordeon black plastic things?
will they slide on from the bottom or do you have to dismantle the forks anyway?
Hi, I need a set of front fork gaitors for my 2001 Transalp. Does anyone out there know of any after market varients, as the genuine Honda ones are £32 each! Pretty steep for a bit of plastic tubing. Thanks for your time.
