question about intake manifolds?

I have a question and I know that someone on here can answer it for me. I have a 93 vn750 that has been sitting for several years, a few little parts here and there are missing, the carbs had been removed, but not taken apart. the intake manifolds are gone. Can I just use some hose clamps and rubber stick hose as makeshifts just to get the bike started, until I can get some actual manifolds, I think it would work just want to know what everyone else thinks.

In my own opinion yes it would work/run, but it would cause an air flow issue. the boot was designed to fit the profile of both head and carborator. the ridge or diametor differences of the two parts coupled would would cause turbulance and affect the atomization lowering your volume efficiance giving you worse gas milage and if not making it easier to flood when it cause the fuel to puddle which in turn would foul your plugs. I appologize about my elaborate response, I am just trying to explain the problem best I can.

If I had that big of rubber hose sitting around I would deffinatly give it a shot, but I would not buy it for that reason. Typically hose that size is a little pricey. the part numbers you need are 16065-1123 carburator-holder rear 22.17 , 16065-1122 carburator-holder front 22.17 and 2 92037-1632 clamps at 3.39 ea. i did not locate the p/n for the clamp from carb to boot but you could just use a higher grade hose clamp. I got the prices from ron ayers.
