    fork protection

    Hi,
    I noticed some rust spots on my lower fork stanchions. Has anyone fitted a good protector to them?
    I saw these on ebay: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Carbon-Fibre-Finish-Adventure-Fork-Protectors-Suzuki-V-Strom-1000-Desert/264133488590
    Would be tempted to try something like this if they fit.
    Any ideas?
    Thanks,
    C.

    Hi. Do these wrap around the fork with velcro etc. or do they slide down(ie. Need forks removed)?
    Thanks..

    They slide down.
    Yes. it's a bit more work but on the other side it's also less likely to fail because of a broken zipper or dirty Velcro.
    Yesterday it got another test and did it's work again perfect  :155: :092:



    Just to get an idee of the conditions but also bumps and big holes past the revue.
