    I bought some Daystar 58 series fork boots because my stock boots ripped. I got almost three years out of my stockers and at 25 bucks each, I decided to go with Daystars. I got two Daystars for less than one stock boot. I found the Daystars to be thicker and more pliable than the stock ones and seem to be an all around better boot.



    Problem is that the lower end of the boot is bigger than the outer fork of the TW. No problem because the boots come with zipties. I looked at my stock boots and a light came on.



    I cut the lower portion of my stock boots off (basically I cut all the accordion part out) and stuck it on my shock. I then slid my Daystars over the top of them. They are snug as can be and look good too.





    If you can't find it, grind it

    Way to shim!
    “One final paragraph of advice: do not burn yourselves out. Be as I am - a reluctant enthusiast....a part-time crusader, a half-hearted fanatic. Save the other half of yourselves and your lives for pleasure and adventure. It is not enough to fight for the land; it is even more important to enjoy it. While you can. While it’s still here. So get out there and hunt and fish and mess around with your friends, ramble out yonder and explore the forests, climb the mountains, bag the peaks, run the rivers, breathe deep of that yet sweet and lucid air, sit quietly for a while and contemplate the precious stillness, the lovely, mysterious, and awesome space. Enjoy yourselves, keep your brain in your head and your head firmly attached to the body, the body active and alive, and I promise you this much; I promise you this one sweet victory over our enemies, over those desk-bound men and women with their hearts in a safe deposit box, and their eyes hypnotized by desk calculators. I promise you this; You will outlive the bastards.”
