    You need to buy a whole new motorcycle.

    Ok, what are you trying to do? What's the project? What do you need? What do you not know if you need?

    If you don't have the rubber boots on the forks what do you have? Do you have the smaller sliders, # 6? Or everything is missing? If you don't have them you will at least need the hose clamps, #1. I don't know what #2 is, it doesn't look like the fork seal. #4 looks like the hold off for the brake line, you might have #21 instead so can do with out #4 maybe. #5 looks like the wiper that the little sliders use, these don't work very well at keeping out dirt.

    you need #2, it's a doughnut that slides over the fork that the hose clamp attaches the gaiter to. There is a little pin the will slide the doughnut up into the bottom clamp. you should alread have #4, if not you can always use a zip tie. So the gaiter and the doughnut is all you should need.! Oh, and the fancy, skinny, bmw pipe clamps #1.

    #6 is on there for sure, so i assume #5 is as well.

    it is just 1-4 that i wasn't sure about.

    When you get your 2's there is a small hole, it's a vent.
    The G/S has a roll pin through each side of the lower triple to which a hose running into the back of the headlight is attached.
    The G/S triple was also drilled for 4 mounting bolts for the high fender so it's a little different to the ST.
    Without some form of venting the gaiters balloon on comperssion
