    The tubes are 33mm. Go with the 32's.



    I can explain it to you, but I can't understand it for you.

    Powdercoated '87 frame, extended swingarm, YZ fork legs, ATV tire, 14/55, XT350 tank, spliced quick-release seat, disc brake conversion, beeg headlight, beeger rack, Lizrdcooler, Lizrdventz and bunch of other stuff all covered in invisible ink.

    Get the generic boots./ gators. Don't get Yamaha's unless you're rich.

    Check this out



    I have in the meantime removed the stock clamps at the top and used generic hose clamps. I have also zip tied the bottoms.



    If you decide on the ones you've posted about, let us know how they fit. Mine fit fine now. The price was right and they look and perform wonderfully!
    If you can't find it, grind it

    Thank's Rainman... That was a good idea to use the bottom of the old boot to take up the difference.
