We ride in tons of mud and was wondering if it's worth getting the covers?
Will they ever come clean again? Because man it's a hassle to remove them and throw them in the wash.

Hey There. I just ordered some from ebay today. I just got my 07 GYT-R yesterday and i wanna protect them shocks. I didnt have any on my 05 660 and a bunch of dirt and sand got in them and when you put any wieght on the bike you could hear them making niose from all the junk in them. Allthough i dont think it affected thier performance i just didnt like it much. Also the shocks are very hard to clean so hopefully these things work out for the best. I got the grey GYT-R shock covers with the white flame and i dont know how well they will clean up after a good ride but i guess ill have to wait and see.

I use Scotchguard on the outside and tent silicone on the inside of mine. They stay fairly clean considering.

Just know that they will rub the paint off the outside part of the springs.

I have run neoprene covers for years, and they don't rub the paint off the springs. Nylon is another story.

Dirtskins and Verde both make neoprene, and I am sure there are others, too.

I have Dirtskins now, but had Verde on my last ride, both were good products. :thumbsup:
