I HAVE BEEN HEARING FROM PEOPLE FOR YEARS WHO HAVE PURCHASED NEW GATORS/BOOTS FOR THEIR FRONT FORKS THAT HAVE FAILED. I WOULD LIKE TO HEAR FROM PEOPLE WHO ACTUALLY USE THEIR BIKES AND HAVE PURCHASED GATORS THAT ACTUALLY HELD UP TO REAL WORLD ABUSE. IF SO WHERE/WHO DID TO YOU PURCHASE THEM FROM?

We will be having more of the 97-3635 fork boots late this month to early this month

Made in the USA, we put a 10-year warranty on them

Also, the early BSA boot 42-5320 will be arriving, also made in the USA with a 10-year warranty

I keep close contact with the first 97-3635 fork boot pair we sold to a customer about 6 years ago...

No issues and looks as good as the day he installed them

(FYI, we do sell the 97-1645 also with a 10-year warranty)

AS I SUSPECTED THEY ARE USING A POOR GRADE OF MATERIAL EITHER OUT OF IGNORANCE OR JUST TRYING TO SAVE A FEW PENNIES.

And it isn't just the fork gaitors. John Bull tie straps and foot peg rubbers with the square holes both do not last very long.
