Re: Cracked boots/ 87 1100
Also, when you go to slide the boots back onto the carbs through the airbox, do the following.
1) Put the boots in hot water. I microwave or boil the water, pour it in a bowl and toss the boots in the water to soften them up.
2) Do the outside boot first and then the inside for each pair of carbs. You can do both outside's first and then the insides or outside, inside, outside, inside but it is much easier to do the outsides if the inside boots aren't there.
