Well I'm diving in to this forum after having been a voyeur for several months. Can anyone tell me how to put what the parts manual calls a "rib" (actually a chrome retainer ring) back on to the top of my fork gaitors (CL350 K5)? The boots are a little stiff from age, but don't seem too bad. And goldurnit I've busted a couple knuckles and bent back a fingernail trying to wrestle these suckers back into place after rebuilding the forks. So before I just cut 'em off......

thanks - sounds like a rational idea, but I guess that means I've gotta take the fork tube down to get the booties off, eh? Nothing worthwhile is ever easy...
