Lower fornt forks protection

Anyone has any suggestion in how can I protect the lower front forks from road pittings?

Does anyone knows if there is a heavy thick paint or a product that can be painted or sprayed on for protection?

Thanks for any and all suggestions.

Try plasti-dip. several colors, including clear, and you can put a thick layer over, then peel off later after it gets a bit beat up. Could also get some of the transparent film used over headlights to protect from rock chips.

The fork sliders on my Husky have a thick vinyl wrap on them.
Go to Hall's on line and look at parts list for Huskies with forks similar to yours. Get the part number and order. Hall's has parts list for all Husqvarna's.
A little cut to fit and you are good to go. Huskies use Marzocchi forks so you should be able to adapt the Husky vinyl to your bike. Also Husky uses Conventional and USD forks so the plastic deflector types are available from Hall's too

Quick question: USD or RSU forks? It matters.
