Fork bellows

Fork bellows

The fork bellows are essential accessories for the maintenance and protection of two-wheelers (motorcycles, scooters, mopeds, etc.). They extend the life of the telescopic fork by protecting the joints and moving parts of the fork. They help prevent corrosion and reduce maintenance and repair costs. Discover in this article the importance of fork boots, the different models available, how to choose and install them on your vehicle.

Understanding fork boots

A fork gaiter is a flexible covering that protects the fork stem against dirt, humidity, bad weather and shock. These boots fit most types of forks to provide additional protection. They help prevent unwanted residue from depositing on the internal parts of the fork, which could affect its operation and performance.

Their importance for your two-wheeler

Fork protection

The main role of the boots is to protect the upper part of the fork against damage caused byar projections of stones, sand, mud and other road debris. This helps prevent premature wear and extend the life of the fork.

Fork longevity

They are extremely important for maintaining the life of the fork of your two-wheeler. By preventing dirt and splashes from accessing the interior of the fork, they protect the seals and spring plates and ensure smooth operation for longer life.

Various types available

Plastic models

Made of plastic, they are popular for their impact resistance and ease of installation. Plastic does not absorb water, is lightweight and less expensive than other materials.

Neoprene models

Particularly resistant to cold and humidity, neoprene bellows are very resistant to tears, offering great durability. They are slightly more expensive, but their durability makes this investment worthwhile.

Rubber models

Rubber bellows are a classic and reliable choice. They offer heat and UV resistance, as well as good elasticity, allowing them to adapt perfectly to most types of forks.

Universal models

Universal models are designed to fit most vehicle types, providing maximum versatility and flexibility. They are generally adjustable and offer effective protection against impact and wear.

Choosing the right model for your vehicle

Depending on the brand of vehicle

It is important to choose a fork gaiter compatible with the brand of your vehicle. Not all brands use the same type of fork, so it is necessary to check compatibility before purchasing.

Depending on the vehicle model

As with the brand, the vehicle model is a crucial criterion in the choice of fork gaiter. Some models require particular specifications. Be sure to choose a bellows designed for your specific model.

Depending on the fork dimensions

Finally, the dimensions of the fork of your two-wheeler will determine the type of bellows needed. Pay attention to the size, inner and outer diameter of the bellows before purchasing.
