Boot for vortex rear sets

Hello All. I have been greasing my joints for my vortex rearset shifters. I keep losing the grease. I took my steering damper apart and found the same type of joints, but with the rubber boots to keep the grease in. I did some research on the vortex site to see what type of joints they are, but nothing came up. I want to add two of these boots to my vortex rearsets to keep the grease in. Anyone know what the joints are called?

okay, checked price on FK bearings boots. they are like 30 bucks each. I found a used steering damper on ebay for like 5 bucks and 8 bucks shipping the sphereical rod ends on the steering damper and the vortex rod ends appeared to be the same. for reference the Honda part number is 53706-MFJ-D01

'keep losing the grease'

Typically you don't really have to service the rearsets a whole lot. Are you going through a lot of water or something?
