Thanks for checking, Joe. If it struggles to fit the OEM carb, surely itís only worse on a larger one. 

I have an OEM boot that Iím trying to get to fit on a 39 PWK - no luck yet. Iíve done it before with the boiling method, but I just canít get this one to stretch enough. Iíll keep trying. I was hoping the reproduction boot was going to be a potential option if I canít get this one to go.

I've used a heat gun on 3 old stiff oem boots & it worked great

I boiled the boots in water to soften them and also used a heat gun. I personally like the heat gun best. The boots are hard to hold on to if it is scalding hot all over. The heat gun heats right where you need it.

Looks like they now offer a reproduction boot to fit larger carburetorsÖ.

Has anyone put one of these through a few rides? It would be nice to get a ride report on how they hold up.

I worked with the hotfootmoto guy years ago to make the first 86. I never ran the reproduction I got from it, but I remember the material being really stiff. It wasn't a bad attempt, but I never ran it.

I did have an open filter bracket made that is longer on the carb side so that a CR reed boot can be used, which I think is preferable for smaller bore engines instead of the larger volume trx boot. I still have a few. I'd be glad to send a couple.
