Noticed I have a small 30mm split in one of my 04 Alp's standard black fork gaitors the other day . Its along one of the creases as you would expect. Has anyone here tried a repair such as some black silicone etc. or is a new pair recommended. If so, replace with the same or try to get a Velcro neoprene type as that would mean the forks donb't need to be dropped...but are they any good!!
