    So I have (I think) a 2000 Manitou SX with an unsightly pair of big black boots. I want to tear those suckers off but I want to get a pair of seals . Such as these;


    But at the same time I don't want to ruin the fork, by getting a crap pair of seals. Anyone know if these are gonna work well?

    I've used them and had good luck on a Manitou Black.

    I've heard good things about the seals, but I also ran a Mars with no boots. It was fine. I hear the boots hold more junk in. This fork is super simple to pull apart and clean.

    I was joking, but I do have a gun. I don't have any forks that use Prep M.

    That is only for Manitou correct?

    How much do you want for it? How do you know how much lube to put in?

    So do you have the lube too?

    Wait, what will I "owe" you?
    Last time there was all the talk of hand cuffs and feather dusters.
