I have the TB 26mm intake and the rubber boot is torn and i noticed my buddies was torn to in the same spot. Has anyone else had issues with these rubber boots ? And does anyone make braided ones so they wont tear ?

i have been through 2 or 3 on my little vm26 and i would definetley like to get a shortened boot that is tougher. i have made a few "braces" to hold the carb more steadily and not allow the boot to flex up and down so much, but i still get stress tears..

ya mine hasnt tore all the way through yet but looks very close , i think its because of the u flow tht makes the carb lean downward and pulls on the boot

i have done the real mikuni boot on my 110, it is a little shorter and seems like it has a little less flex than the tb one. it has been holding up thus far. as for price, i seem to remember them being 5 or so more than the tb. but well worth it in my opinion

if you have a u-flow it has a brace that holds your carb in the same spot, thus the carb boot shouldnt bounce/tear when you jump.
