    Is there anything I can use to replace that plastic coating on the shift forks, or is replacement my sole option?

    I wanna say that a rebuild kit is the only way to get the plastic covers.

    What I had been thinking of was finding some stock "pads" (such as the 208 and T56 use on their shift rails) and having the 465 rails machined just enough to fit them.

    The T56 ones are too small, I think you'd have to remove too much metal, but there might be something out there like this. All they need to mount is a flat surface and a dimple in the fork to locate them.
