No, those gators are aftermarket. The 750's never had a factory dust boot installed on front forks. Which reminds me, something else to put down on the todo list. Always wanted dust boots for the front forks.Which in turn says that you do care about what others say.
Anyway, Wolfie, I've seen you mention a few times how Harley mufflers can be fit easily to the VN750. Are those the ones you always mean? How's the sound compared to stock? Can you give an "in a nut shell" description of how to put another set of mufflers on the bike?
Also, are the dust boots on the forks supposed to be there? Now I saw Fenris' (I think) bike and it has the same ones... wondering if I'm just missing them on mine.
