Retro Style Fork Protectors

A hallmark of the streetbikes of yesteryear, the advent of chromed, polished, DLC and anodized fork tube finishes saw the use of fork boots diminish to the point where there are very few major brand middleweight and above models that come with them as stock.

However, they are one of those finishing touches that convincingly "speak retro", adding a touch of authenticity, and they do still have a role to play - extending seal life and protecting those expensive fork tube finishes from the rigors of street riding - especially in bad weather and in urban settings.
Made of heavy-duty, ozone-resistant rubber, they fit 39 mm tubes and come with an extra rib for a "more relaxed look".
