Kriega Fork Seals are extremely easy to fit, using velcro which means fork disassembley is not required. Neoprene fork seals are most effective when they are fresh and clean. Old skool fork protectors are difficult to clean behind, but our design allows you to clean them every ride if you need to. They can be fitted without cable ties, but you will get increased service life by using cable ties to protect the Neoskin from the fork slider.
Top tip! Extend the operational life of the Forks Seal Covers is to lightly spray the inside with WD40 or similar prior to installing and after each cleaning. A spot of sunscreen on the outside can also help boost the in-built UV protection in certain conditions. Weird, but it works!
NB: With the full-wrap guard and the plastic rings in place, the neoprene will wear through at one point very quickly. This does not effect the performance of the Fork Seal as the hole is in a non-critical area, but it can look scruffy. Full-wrap fork sliders, as found on post-2008 KTMs and Husabergs, have a very close tolerance to the plastic dust-cover rings at the end of the fork and can wear through any brand of neoprene cover very quickly. To overcome this problem; either fit 2007-style KTM fork sliders (as shown) or remove the black plastic rings at the end of the fork and use cable ties when fitting. Regardless of which solution you choose, it really does pay to use neoprene fork covers as they make a marked difference to the service interval of your fork.

The Kriega fork seal covers are excellent. They are easy to fit and easy to live with. Simple to remove and clean, which means I really do remove and clean them! I have been using the older style for the last two years and just switched to the new, larger style for USD forks and am very pleased with the fit of the new style. I have ridden thru a lot of dirt/dust/mud and put over 80k miles with Kriega fork seal covers and never had to replace a leaking fork seal. For me, that says it all.
I've got them on my Yamaha Super Tenere and my wife's F650GS twin, both bikes have used them since new and have over 80k miles w/o a single fork seal leak.

Installing the Kriega fork seal covers is fairly simple. Since the covers are neoprene, they stretch readily to conform to your forks. Unfortunately, the package does not come ready with a zip ties. You'll need slightly longer ties to loop around the fork tubes. Overall quality is great so far and the velcro isn't cheap and does not pill. The price is slightly higher than I would imagine for neoprene and velcro. My only suggestion would be to add 1 or 2 more zip tie loops, or to stitch them into the neoprene. But, they seem to do the job well.

This product seems to do the job well. I cannot guess as to how well it will last, but so far it is great. If it last a few years it is worth the money. If not, it may be a little overpriced, but if you have been having trouble with dirt and sand in your seals, I recomment trying this.

I was looking around wondering why no one had created something like this. Then, there it was. Exactly what I was looking for. Everyone who has exsposed fork sliders and likes dirt needs these.

Initial installation went well. Will see how they hold up.Another loop for cable tie would help.

The fork seal covers to a good job keeping the seals clean and have been durable so far. Be sure to remove and wash covers every few rides. Only improvement would be one more loop for the cable tie at the top.
