Default Info for GB500 Fork boots...

I have a link to the parts index that has the part number for the Honda GB500 Fork boots/gaiters that fit 35mm forks like the ones on my '76: http://www.directcon.net/lcshepp/GB500PLPageD7.html. I called and ordered a pair ($36.95 A PIECE) from my local Honda dealer. Just thought some of ya fellow Ironhead geeks might like to know! Use the part number or they'll sell you the totally wrong boots like they did to me...

Yep, they're expensive, but you get what you pay for. They were about $28 each when I bought mine a couple of years ago. They're quality parts and won't rot into pieces in a few years.

If it ain't broke, don't fix it (especially if you don't know what you're doing). Most Sportster problems are owner-induced.
