I put them through the test at Snowshoe GNCC. I collected more mud and dirt under the seal savers than if I didn't have them at all. before the race put heavy zip ties so they wouldn't rub the fork guards. Didn't help. plus seals leaked from all the mud that was pushed up and stuck under the sealsavers.

Need to make them so they come on and off for cleaning and installation.
I had the old short ones and they kept my seals intact for four years. Seal savers ripped after a muddy day and seals went out. The new longer ones look goofy but I am sure are just as effective. Must have after a time consuming seal change.
These work,but you need to disassemble the front end of your bike to install them.
i put these on my 05 yz450f and they lasted two weeks. they have huge holes in them and ripped around the zip tie. do not waste your money on these. the only good thang about it, when i called i talked to the owner his self.very good customer service.
yes I've used this product.......... don't make the same mistake. the insides if the seal savers were caked with dirt and grime. im just lucky they didn't scratch my forks. oh and don't plan on racing with these ether .
man do these thing work like a beaut. I have had them on for about a yr now and as long as you hose them off after every ride your seal are bound to last.
they don't look good and you blow shocks by hucking to far onto the flats. won't make any difference.
I've used these for a year now with no problems. Used zip ties to hold in place. Adjusted fork guards so they won't rub. And clean after day of riding to prevent build up. Great idea to save on doing fork seals.
I always bought the short ones but know I know better. Easy to cut and get twice the product for nearly half the cost.
The description isn't correct... The DO effect the damping. Always had trouble setting the forks up for sharp hits (rocks, logs and such) until I told Factory Connection that I was using Sealsavers now my forks rock over rocks!
If you ride in muddy conditions... Anywhere in the east. These will save those seals from that destructive silty mud.
These are actually bad for your forks. I had them on my bike up untill i went to have my forks re-valved. The guy at the shop told me I shouldnt use them because it dust and dirt can build up inside them. Sure enough when we took them off the was about 3mm of dirt built up around my seals and the sides of the fabric were caked too. Luckily the coating on my fork tubes werent scratched.
These really aren't that great. The plastic guards can rub a hole in them, in a hurry.
These really make your fork seals last alot longer!! I bought the longer ones for my yz250 and cut em in half so I have another set! Def worth using!
These things work fine as long as your fork guards don't rub on them. I put them on my '07 CRF 250 and the fork guards have always rubbed, so these got holes worn in them immediately.
Went on easy. Just had problems keeping them up once my forks started moving, I just ended up zip tieing them on.
you have to pull fork tubes but they are easy to install and I have not had any leaking seals since putting them on.
I used a short pair for 4 years without one fork leak. Amazing product!
they work great. easy to install. just make sure you use plenty of zip ties or the sleeve will slide down.
