I had to think for a few after my first post but figured that's what you were talking about. I have only seen one that dropped while riding but that was on a three year old bike. If it's happening to a new bike there must be something wrong with the ring. I would think the only fix would be to get a new one. I cant imagine there being anything wrong with the fork leg, but you never know.

Those are considered fork mud scrapers. They will begin to weaken and fail due to the constant rubbing on the fork protector. SKF now makes higher quality versions, you may as well replace them with these

Thanks, it appears that it just wasn't locked into position, I adjusted it yesterday and it hasn't fell since.
