Buenos dias, y'all.  With the cakky weather in England of late and the attendant salty roads, my rear suspension is getting a tad rusty spotty.  So I need to clean that up - any tips of advice, please..?   Also, I'm thinking of getting some suspension gaiters to protect them, does anyone have any experience of using these?

Cheers, men.

  Jack, Starcross.

I put them on all my bikes that come without them. Currently have wrap around that do not require fork removal. My source, Dennis Kirk in US, but they seem no longer to list them. Elsewhere?

Thanks, John. Are they plastic corrugated or fabric?

John, I think his post talked about the rear suspension and not the forks. I could be wrong; often am.

Yeh, it's the rear, primarily as the back wheel is cunningly designed to spray crap all over them. But, of course, the front forks / seals need protection from English roads.

Those, Iron Pony, fork guards are exactly what Dennis Kirk used to sell. they work well and last over 50,000 miles

Rear=I think only solution is to keep shock sprayed with WD40----wash crud off now and then. It does not take salt and other road chemicals long to do their damage.

Gaiters are good for keeping the wind from blowing up your pants legs in cold or wet weather.
