I want to get rid of the accordion gaiters on my '04TA. Would like to install 'normal' fork boot sliders. Anyone know what would work as a replacement? If you give the fork tube diameter and the lower tube diameter, can they be matched? Thanks

I use http://www.sealsavers.com/

Also it turns out that you can get fork boots from one of the honda XR that are still offered and fit the '89 TA perfectly well. And they're the proper color.

I would love to replace my beat up blue fork boots, what year XR should I be looking at?
