Carburetor, Intake, and Exhaust / Re: UPP Intake Boot Ripped

This is for you Myles. The pic is a little misleading. But there is a significant difference.

F-Red:

Using an OEM type carb clamp will make life easier on any intake boot.  The clamp that you are using above, makes life a little more difficult on the hose because that type of radiator clamp tends to "bunch up the rubber" on one side of the hose.

I respect your opinion Jerry. Been using these style clamps on boots forever. Iíll look for another style. It started when using ESRís air box eliminator kit. A ridged mount to the frame. The only movement the air filter has, is at the boot. 

UPP said they have never seen this failure before. They did agree to replace. Hallelujah!

Fred, if you get a chance can you post a pic without the hose clamp

Myles,

I believe the OEM is too restricted. Need more volume for the fire breathin' motors.

I have seen these UPP boots do this many times.  It is not the fuel that you are using..............it is the material and the process that UPP is using.

Hey Jerry, long time no hear. Glad to see you around.

Well that sucks. Are there other options available?

UPP oversized boot tore like torqued. Maybe from the ridged ESR filter mount to the frame. Need to re-think for flexibility.

The tire changer didnít work on powder coated rims. Found a shop in town. They did a job. $5 a rim to mount.

Thanks guys, I was looking for some good feedback.

Myles, I got the one you have. I had a 20% off coupon. Came to $34 out the door.

Josh, I was going to get that one. Saw people put it in a bench vise. Looked like it worked well. But for the price, I couldnít pass on the bigger one.

Does anybody mount their tires manually? I'm having more trouble finding a shop to mount, ATV sized tires. I was thinking about taking this on myself.

Engine and Bottom End / Re: enough demand for billet cases yet?
« on: May 24, 2019, 12:09:28 PM »
Nice to see others stepping up. There are options available. ESR has made new casting halves. Panthera makes cases for their CR500 engine. Needing billet cases for the 250r, would probably be a small group. At those prices, most of us will improvise. This is just one guys opinion. How about making some all aluminum heel guards? There is a definite market for those.

What does it say, for those of us that don't have facebook?

Myles, without a Facebook account, you can still view public Facebook accounts. You can't share, comment or see private stuff. I read the Miami Herald's Facebook page every morning.
