    Enduro fork seal for ML7.2 rear shock?

    Came up with this insane idea: Will a DUC32 aka SID enduro seal fit in the rear shock so I can ditch the gaiter?

    Why would you want to ditch the gaiter? Messing with the seals in the rear is a HUGE pita. I replaced one once and it ended up shredding the sides of the seal getting it in the frame. I ended up using another seal, but it still tore the sides some. It held air, but it isn't something you want to mess with unless you have no choice.

    Someone at Retrobike has a Palomino without a gaitor and it looks pretty cool, but I am afraid I will ruin the internals without a gaitor. [as I don't know how good the seal works!]
    EDIT:
    That's the Palomino I was talking about.

    Use the Maverick fork seal, blue or black. Enduro seals wear stanchions very fast and have a lot of drag.

    If you ride where there is not a lot of water, at all, and you dry rag clean the bike, yeah, don't use the boot.
