Sorry for asking the same question. I'm also looking for fork gaiters. Found the Rancho but amazon won't let me proceed to checkout. WTF

Anyway, looked at gaiterman site but i'm not 100% certain about the sizing. '88 K100RT. Sad

I just bought a set from Motorworks in the UK. OK price, freight's a bit of a killer even if you bulk order a few thing but they arrived in about a week.

If any Ozzies are ordering from Motorworks soonish, I need a set of steering head bearing dust covers... forgot to include these in my recent order. I'll share some freight. PM me. Thanks

If you drive a small blade under the cone then they come off without bending the covers just wash the grease off the silver before replacing it.

Yep... freight is a bit of a killer. Not worth ordering unless you have a reasonable list.
I checked out those available on Amazon and imo they don't look as good quality as those from Motoworks which fit over the staunchions neatly.

Yes, now doubt the Motoworks ones look like much better quality. It's the freight that is almost equal to the product cost I find a bit hard to stomach. I'll wait till I need a couple more things to make it worth it.

The ones Motorworks have is genuine BMW.
Motobins have a cheaper alternative for the F&S fork...also genuine BMW.

The bins price is each I think. Works price is for the pair so I think they work out the same. But the Works gaiter looks longer to me and has a wider collar at the bottom to take the lower fork. Just installed on my old girl and they fit perfectly.

My bad...didn't notice that...makes the price difference marginal.
