Parts Unlimited has them for $12.00 each. Which is just about 1/4 the price of OEM....

My question, has anyone knowingly used these and had any bad experiences?

Thanks in advance.

By the way I searched and after 2 pages I figured it was safe to ask now.[thumb]

I have tried them on older machines and have had very bad luck with them. They are usually lower quailty than oem. I have seen poor sealing to the engine and they cracked when they only one year old. Maybe Mikuni brand boots would work better than what Ive tried, but imo nothing works as good as oem.

x2 on the oem stuff. I did some research before shelling out the big bucks for them and figured the old ones lasted almost 10 years. @ $45 each...I didn't think that was too bad. Not sure on the Mikuni ones.

x3 I have had problems with 2 sets of these aftermarket boots. Oem would be your best bet.
