The rubber piece between the carb and engine has developed some cracks right beside where the carb clamp goes. They don't go all the way through, maybe half way, but I don't want to ignore them. Is there some glue or magic elixir I can use to repair this or do I need to find a replacement?



Thanks for any help,



Hobbit

Replacement is always best but they aren't cheap. $40-50 a piece.



Some have fixed them using rubber sealants, that plastic grip dip for tools, Or even adhering bicycle inner tube to them in a nice tight fit.

Liquid electrical tape. At Home Depot or Lowes. Not as tough as plasti-dip but looks better and its real easy to reapply.

I've had my bike boots over 6 years years now.The uppers are fine but the soles were wearing through especially on the gear foot and they were letting water in through the soles which I found out on this day<grin>,
