Thanks

I can help you with that. Am busy with another DR suspension upgrade at the moment.

You mean fork "boots"? The rubber/plastic stuff?

Those are pretty generic I guess... Startline stock a few different sizes, you might want to take measurements for length of boot, the diameter of top and bottom holes, and count the number of "pleats" / folds in the boot... then you should be able to replace it using those details if you can't take in a sample.

Edit: Yeah, just arrange through superfoxi and you should be getting exactly what you need!

I can only get them for you next week. Or she can go to Craig's Motorcycles in Maitland. They are very helpful and might have stock of aftermarket fork boots. Don't buy the ones from Startline. They don't last...

A set of  good aftermarket ones (Progrip) should be around R350-400
