Hi all

Just got my 1st Bike

Got the dealer to put a Scottoiler and Crash Bobbins on

600 mile service imminent and I am thinking about fork protectors

Thoughts anyone

Forks are easy to keep clean & a wipe with a bit of oil keeps them good as new,,, BUT

a hugger is a must & keep your eye on the two cross members fwd of the rear wheel,

without the hugger they take all the hammer from road dirt, even with the hugger they

still pick up a lot, I had my ER new in 06 & those two areas will be the ones you need to

keep on top of, A big blob of thick grease should do the job :D

Good bikes the ER's just about to swop mine for,,,,,,, another ER,, sadly not the 09, they

moved the rear handles from the top to the side, so my Givi panniers won't fit the new models,

found an 07 with only 1175 miles on it & pick it up tomorrow :D

I'd go for them. Oil won't protect against stone chips. A chip in the chrome of the fork leg can write it off. 8-)


Normally I would agree Col, but on the ER most of the chrome on the forks is under the fairing,

I still stick to the hugger for first thing to buy, to stop all the wet & crap getting into all the

nooks crannies & electrics under the seat area,,
