SealSavers Zip-On is a revolutionary
design that allows for quick and easy
installation. You can clean them without having to remove the fork from the
triple clamp. A unique dual-flap zipper
protection system is utilized to protect
your fork from the nylon zipper. When
installed and the protection flaps are
sealed, Zip-Ons look almost identical to
the original SealSavers.

TWIN AIR FACTORY
For many years Twin
Air Factory pre-oiled filters
were only available to top
professional race teams
and OEM customers. The
results were so good that
Twin Air offers the same
factory treatment to everyone. They start with an
original dual-stage air filter
and completely submerge it
in BIO Liquid Power filter oil.
After the filter is massaged
to ensure all pores are evenly coated with oil, it’s placed in a temperature-controlled room to allow the oil to completely cure. You just open the
resealable bag and install.

was getting beat, and I got beat for
a couple of years.”

“We found that when we engaged
the system on a loamy track that it

“I happened across a Craigslist

The sales price was $1500. I called
