Your KDX has the full length fork boots to protect the inner legs from gravel nicks & seals from mud. The KLR originally came with full length fork boots also, those foam neoprene gaiters are leaving the upper half of the inner legs Un-Protected, which can lead to early seal destruction! Even dried bugs can destroy seals on highway rides on unprotected legs!
KLR oem fork boots are a perfect fit, but pricey. Daystar boots are a little tight around the legs, the Polisports are extra long & need air vents added around the lowest full pleat after shortening (I used a heated wire).
Modify at "YOUR OWN RISK"!
