KRIEGA FORKS SEAL COVERS


One of the best investments we made for our trip this past summer was buying fork seal protectors.  For $25 these little things can save you a lot of inconvenience.  Although we have no proof that using fork seal covers worked, I guess you can say since we never had any issues perhaps they did.

We ran into a few folks where a blown seal halted if not ended their trip.  There are many ideas out there like DIY covers and other brands, but we went with KRIEGA covers.  They fit perfectly on the Triumph Tiger 800XC forks and also looked the part too.

Fork Seals

Increased service life for your USD forks with more effective protection from mud & dirt. Made from NEOSKIN (coated neoprene). Easy fit/clean, no fork disassembly required.

Kreiga Fork Seal Covers

Completely understated, yet so valuable when traveling in general.  Very easy to install and every once in a while we would take them off, rinse them and put them back on.  Every time we hit the gross stuff up North practically the only place on the bikes that stayed “clean” were the forks.

The forks would stay clean even when the bikes were caked in this!

Do you have to buy KRIEGA?  Nope…but when you want something practical that only costs a few bucks but can save you a possible PITA (pain in the ass) situation, some sort of seal cover is in your best interest.

BTW, we have them on our BMW’s now, and although the forks are not inverted they still fit and if needed there are little loops to use cable ties just in case.  Check them out, or at least think about doing something to protect your seals.  You can’t go wrong by doing something and not over looking this area of the bike.

  1. Good timing on this, I just bought an XC yesterday and I am ordering some of the seal covers. The last 3 times I have gone to Death Valley, I have had to change fork seals shortly after getting home, on my GS and on my VFR. For the price these sure can’t hurt.
