I recently installed a set of KFX 450R front shocks on my TRX400EX. I'm loving them so far but I want to get a set of covers for them. I'd like to get a set of neoprene ones since I've read that the nylon ones can be rough on the springs and wear the paint off, but I can't seem to find any. The only neoprene ones I can find are Dirt Skins. Problem is that they only make them for the KFX 400s and 700s. However, I have seen some sets on eBay that are listed for 700s and 450Rs (the nylon Monster ones). So, are the 450R and 700 shocks the same size? Or, at least, will a set of 700 covers fit my 450R shocks?

Thanks.

The 700 shocks are slightly shorter but about the same diameter.

I finally tracked down the number to Dirt Skins and gave them a call. They took my measurements and are going to make me a custom set. They also let me do a package deal with my stock rear. Oh and I got a free t-shirt too.
