It is plenty tight as it is.

just a note regarding the 'metal' replacement forks: I bought one to replace a broken original plastic one....riveted it on and when trying to fit it over the frame bar, it just wouldn't fit nicely and would work its way back up just with the tension of the boot cover (apart from scratching the hell out of my frame!)...the plastic being slightly elastic grips far better and stays put.

My tip, stick to the plastic type...they might break again after 20 years use, but big deal.
(you can tell if they are still the originals on your top boot by the rivets...the factory rivets are always wonky, as in the photos in post 11 above!)
