I would like to know what could I use to protect the rubber gaiters and other rubber parts in my bike. Is there a rubber conditioner that would protect the rubber from cracking and degradation? all advice appreciated.
Most "rubber" parts are usually a synthetic called neoprene. As kommando says, silicone is good - I use a cheap spray-on furniture polish, any of which tend to contain a quantity of silicone. Just watch out for the perfume in some of 'em ...
Hello Kommando Didn`t know they made better ones,I will need another set for my project bike,will keep it in mind when I order.Can you let me know who sells the better quality gaiters and other rubber parts? Thanks for the advice.
Had a look but can't find the link and can't remember any details, I do know that Andover Norton gaitors last 20 odd years but they don't make Triumph gaitors but if the same material is used they would last 20 years too.
I have been using 303 Aerospace protectant. I haven't used it long enough on gaiters to give any real testimony on effectiveness, though. I got it at a kayak store. People swear by it for polypropylene kayaks and for jeep soft tops. Brendan
