    What I really would like to know though.. What's that luggage contraption behind your bike?

    Thanks for the link kaz. I ordered 2 pairs at that price. Nice to have a spare. Only issue is there is no bore dimensions so it's a guess if they'll fit.

    I measured my forks and the tubes are 41mm (known). The O.D. where the seals are is 64mm. Does anyone know the dimensions of the boots? I'm hoping they are a snug fit on both dimensions.

    Hey Hammer, nice score on the second pair! The boots will more than likely only be snug at the 64mm attaching location(most likely). :{P

    Good news/Bad news day. I ordered the ones from post #22 off Ebay. Good news. My fork boots arrived today. Bad news. They are way too small in diameter on both ends. I should have known when the add didn't list the diameters. These are 45mm and 30mm. I need 64mm and 41mm. Good thing they weren't expensive. So the search goes on unless someone has a link to boots that actually fit our bikes.

    fork boots-img_e0305-jpg I got these. Hook & loop attachment. I noticed they slid above the forks so I zip-tied the bottoms on & so far they've stayed in place. Another zip-tie in the middle in case the hook & loop lets go. Had them 3 months, no problems yet. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

    These are a good fit for the 41mm end; zip tie. So slightly loose on the bottom; could use the included zip tie to snug it on there, but then again it seems to be staying put for the moment just pulled down between the fender and fork. Pricier than eBay, but is an EMGO branded part and more dependable vendor most likely.

    Actually, I like the idea of the bottoms being a little loose. If any water got inside the boots, it could drain.

    AGREE
    Fork boots that hold water are worse than no boots..........first rule of mods........”do no harm”.
    The better ones have drain holes on the back lowest pleat.
