Aftermarket intake boots.

I'm planning to replace the cracked intake boots on my 02 and ran across a bunch of aftermarket items on ebay. I have to admit that I'm intrigued by the idea of snagging all 4 for $35 or less in some instances. Common sense tells me to just get OEM ones.

I looked at these myself, the return policy is encouraging, someone has to take the plunge & tell us about their quality,I did purchase the carb rebuild kit that is $30 for 4 carbs & in the process of installing it in my carbs. if you decide to purchase please make sure to give us your feedback on their quality & fit.
the stock is $30 for one

Everyone’s intake boots have cracks. I don’t think anyone actually has found them to go all the way through. It’s really thick material You could test with brake cleaner and see if the cracks go all the way through. I’d leave em, unless less cosmetically you want to replace but I know OEM ain’t cheap and not sure I would trust the longevity of a knockoff

As stated, nobody has actually had any that were cracked all the way thru. If the looks make you unhappy, you could fill the cracks with silicone and paint them with plastidip or similar.

Not on an FZ1 but have found them cracked all the way through on other Yamahas that lived their lives outdoor in SoCal. A piece of Gorilla tape confirmed diagnosis and got it running but did have to replace.

Thanks for the input. I had no idea the cracks are mostly superficial. I've yanked my carbs before and if the aftermarket intake boots are junk, that means ordering OEM and taking them out again. I'm not willing to be a cheapskate to find out, rather just buy OEM.

I paid $25.00 for OEM boots that were indistinguishable from brand new. On eBay.
