Fork Gaiters

Post by smshnick »



I've got my front forks off for a re-seal and would like to install some fork gaiters while they're apart. Does anyone know a brand / size that fit the Gl1000? Thanks,

Nick

Just Google it, I did and a zillion of them popped up.

I don't know the size of the tubs, altho after 36 years I should so I couldn't do a fitment.

I have never used these but they say for gl1000 as well as other bikes. http://www.speedmotoco.com/fork-gator-g ... 55-008.htm

I have heard that you will need 37mm x 6 inches. These are 38 x 6.75. ??? Try e-bay.
