Fun with Ebay

Woo! I just won an auction for four new (to me) carburetor boots for the VF700. The seller says they’re used but still soft, which is all I care about. The ones on Peter’s bike now are so rigid that we can’t seat the carbs onto the engine. Hopefully this’ll let us get the carbs back on and the bike back in running condition.

Yay! Four carb boots for less than half of the cost of just one brand-new one. 😀

    Boiling the boots also tends to help soften them up… and lube is always good 🙂
