Get the long ones and you will see why we love seal savers. I have had them on both of my bikes for a year now, and I haven't had a leak yet.

If you ride the woods don't crash with them. The first ride out with my brand new Seal Savers I took a tumble and they got ripped to shreads. My buddy just shook his head and said wet suit material belongs in the water not in the woods. I'm going back to the regular plastic boot and I'll just make sure to maintain cleanliness underneath it.

Seal savers work great, especially on inverted forks. But, on conventional forks, such as the kdx's, I would just use the rubber, accordian boots.

I have had the long ones on my DR350 for over 3 years of woods riding and they have held up great. I got mine from Scott Summers but I think Seal Saver make them. They do a great job of keeping the seals clean and dry.

The boot and sealsaver would have to share the lower clamp area and I'm not sure how much give the boot hole has to get over the now larger diameter with the seal saver. I had the long sealsavers so I may be able to cut them down to a small size and salvage them. I will attempt to get the boot on also and let you know.
I admit my tumble was out of the ordinary as I haven't crashed that hard in 3+ years. Just rotten luck I guess.

F.Y.I accordian boots will fit over the short seal savers and probably the long ones for that matter. mine started coming apart at the seem so i slipped the boot back over and zip tied. we'll see how long that lasts. sealsavers do keep the mud out i'll say that for'em.

Are the Sealsavers supposed to stretch over the black dust covers or just slide onto the tube and butt up against them?  :confused:
