    To take the boots off, cut them. Your bikeshop will be able to order you firmer springs or whatever.....I dont think you'll be able to find a kit online.

    Yes, it's worth it. The smaller boots have a cleaner look to them, and they are lighter.

    2. How can i take them off...can i just stretch them over the assembly or do i have to take it apart...

    The best way is wait until you get the upgraded elastomer bushings.

    3. these shocks are SOFT! i need a firm ride kit...do they make one for this fork!!! if so PLEASE tell me!!

    You can get an upgrade kit.

    Thanks...Scott
    I try not to say too much, for fear of putting my foot in my mouth when it should be clipped to my pedals.

    I like the Lizard Skin fork boots. Chech them out. I have even seen some riders cut them to a desired length.
