Fork gaiters
« on: January 30, 2015, 02:43:11 pm »
I will have my forks apart on my 2000 Trophy 1200 and was wondering if fork gaiters could be fitted?  Has anyone else had any luck doing this?  If so where did you find them?

Thanks,
Jim

Hi jschara and  :400: to the Forum !

This Forum is dedicated to the "new" Triumph Trophy released in 2012,
and although everyone is welcome here, discussions on other Triumph models should,
to avoid any confusion, be discussed in the "On Two Wheels / Bikers Chat" Section.

There are other forums over on Triumph Rat.net
where you may find more useful information for your Model  :028:

If you are going to stick around here ( please do - we might tempt you into buying a new one !   :038:)
then feel free to introduce yourself, as is customary, over in the "New Members" Section  :169:

Cheers  :821:

You could probably rig something up but you shouldn't need to.  Do you ride under really bad conditions such that you think the gaiters would help.  If you have leak problems and if the tubes are scored then just replace the seals.  That should suffice.  It certainly did on the later model twins that I rode years back.
