    Black boots

    What are the short rubber boots on my 03 Manitou Black Comp for? The outer seals seem to do an adequate job of wiping crud off the stanchions. I'm afraid I might forget to clean the dust off the fork and stuff would collect around the lips of the boots and scratch the stanchions. Should I just take the boots off?

    No. If your fork has boots, it means that the seals are not designed to be tough enough against the elements. You could order a set of Enduro seals, and replace the current ones, then you can take the boots off.
