    The fork tubes are 33mm if you're shopping aftermarket.



    I use Daystars.



    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.

    Daystars fit, but they are not a perfect fit. I like mine. They were WAY cheaper than stock, they look good, and they do the job. With a little "fine tuning" they do just fine.



    Check out what I did to make them fit a little better.



    I have since removed the stock upper clamp and replaced it with a generic hose clamp. I also used a black zip tie on the bottom to snug the boots up a little bit. They haven't moved since I did it this spring. The boots look great and work just as good as the stock ones.
    If you can't find it, grind it
