I'm looking to buy a set of carbto cylinder head boots and clamps. One of mine is cracked and I'm pretty sure thats causing all kinds of issues with my back cylinder misfiring at cruise. Just let me know what you've got, Id like boots in as good a shape as possible. Again I need both boots that go from the carbs to the cylinders, and all 4 clamps for them. Or if you know where I can buy them new feel free to link me.

I have a tear in the back one. Its about 4" long and Ive tried sealing several different ways. Im just gonna have to replace it, and I wanna do them both at once, and replace the clamls while its down. And yes its the carb to head boots.

I could use a set of carb boots myself, actually I only need the boot for the rear cylinder. PM me if you've got one for sale. Spencer
