Stock cracked ones are probably better than new Chinese ones.

The price is tempting, my bike is 2004, I want to remove the carbs for a good cleaning and jetting but can't have surprises like a cracked boot while doing the job, it must be done and running in a wk end.

almost all of them are cracked on the outside, but almost none of them are cracked all the way through..

But if you want to try your hand at porting them they wouldnt be a bad buy

Mine on my 2002 FZ1, are cracked. They also have 117,000 miles on them, and are not cracked all the way through. Those boots are very thick. So far, never heard of any completely cracking, and failing. I think you will be fine using what you have.

Oh yes, mine are ported. Did it, many years ago.

303 protectant. Use this stuff on the inside and out side of your intake boots and never worry about cracks again!
You can get it Walmart or your auto part store.
Use it on ANYTHING rubber to make it last damn near forever!

I don't think I've ever seen anyone with boots actually cracked all the way through. You could always be the first, but I highly doubt it.

Easy way to check if the cracks are all the way through, spray some brake cleaner or hold some propane near the cracks and see if engine RPMs change

I just installed these https://www.ebay.com/itm/K-L-Intake-...-/202081378220

on my 2002 . mine were cracked bad and although I didnt see any cracks on the interior of the stock ones the miss at cold idle is gone .

Throttle seems to have more snatch too

Im very happy with them . They cost a bit of coin for some carb boots but ... its worth it to not have the bike leaned out at cold idle .

All you need to do is take a Dremel to the inside lip of the carb boot. You will see it when you look inside it. Grind It down smooth with the rest of the carb boot. It is as easy as that. Just be sure you do it with the boots off the bike.
