Does anyone make quality gaiters anymore? The gaiters on my 68 Triumph Bonneville T120R failed about two years ago. I replaced them with new gaiters from a well-known British parts supplier about two years ago. These have now failed. It is a bother to replace them so I'm wondering if anyone actually still makes good ones.

My 1965 TR6SR fork gaiters turned into O-rings after a Blue Ridge Parkway trip. I replaced them with the no crack gaiters from CBS and they still look like new. Yes, they cost more than most of the others, but they look fine and there is not the the aggravation of having to replace them. There is enough other crap to deal with on a 57 year old bike, so why not eliminate what you can.

Don’t buy ones specified for “vintage” or British bikes.

Buy them by measurements, from EBay.

We started offering a 10-year warranty on some our gaiters about 5 or 6 years ago

I have sold plenty of these fork boots with no returns

In fact, the first set I sold is in Japan, still looks as good as the day he installed them

Yes I am located in the desert, I have a full machine and parts shop
