Are you able to buy just the sock? I have looked up parts fische and it shows whole unit, with pump etc. I see SPI makes socks, but have only found the ones for RMK. Same? Sorry to hijack, but looking to do this as well.

I believe that is what is in mine, the Spi one. I know if you go on Bikeman's site under Rush pro R, they sell just the sock.

I believe just the sock for an Axys is Part # 2205699. I haven't been able to find an aftermarket one that is the same size/shape/length.

Sorry, this is the Axys section. Not sure if they are the same part or not.

Methinks you are correct. It has a zig zag shape.

Why can't they just be cleaned and reinstalled?
