Fork Boots Availablity

I just purchased two Rancho fork boots P/N RS1952 for $7.09 (inlcudes sales tax) at the local O'Rielly auto parts store. They didn't have them in stock but had them at the warehouse so they were here in about 3 hours. I'll try to get them installed soon.

Fork Boots

I also have them installed. I really like the looks of them. One point to consider. When you install them you will notice that the bottem has a couple of cuts up from the bottem. It is a good idea to leave a little of these exposed above the clamp/zip-tie. When the forks go up and down, they need to "breath". You need to have a way to let air in and out with the movement. Also if any water would get in, the small gaps will let it out and not hold it against the forks. Good luck!!

I have mine oriented so the slots are front and rear. Any trapped water can leave since the rear is the lowest point.

Pat- 2007 DL650A was ridden to all 48 contiguous states. I didn't quite make it to 17,000 miles on the 2012 DL650A.
Nicknames I use to lessen typing, Vee = 2002-2012 DL1000s. Vee2=2014-2016 DL1000s. Wee = 2004-2011 DL650s. Glee = 2012-2016 DL650s
