    GS750T airbox boots

    Trying to source some new airbox boots for my 750T, but they are not available on any of the OEM parts websites. Does anyone know of a source or interchangeability between models? It seems some 1100's and 750's shared airbox boots, but I'm unsure as the 750T's seem to be exclusive

    eBay- $51.50 each from Japan. Ouch.

    Are yours cracked/broken or just hard/not malleable? If hard, I’ve read of folks successfully softening them up with a solution of wintergreen oil. Not sure of the formula or soaking duration.

      Yikes... They are hard but seem to be in decent shape. I'll try a wintergreen concoction and report back.

        You can look up compatibility, there are several sites that use this same fiche, I use Partzilla.

        https://www.partzilla.com/product/su...fc9ca4af809ca3

        So yours are specific to the 82 and 83 750T.

        Search this forum forum for 'wintergreen' or or YouTube if you have the old ones and want to try - it works, I did it to a bunch of stuff.

            Partzilla are handy when looking at part no's and cross referencing with other models. Problem is on my XS650 they have got the information on x referencing wrong so may times i have to do other x references to make sure............. or at times they have just got it wrong

                Yeah that's where I looked first. They seem specific to that model, but I was wondering if anyone had tried to fit other model's.

                What is the longevity of the wintergreen method? A little research has led me to believe that it lasts long enough to get the carbs on, but the rubber will harden again.

                  It does gas out eventually and harden up again, I can't say exactly how long but it's months based on some carb boots I didn't immediately mount (so I could give them a squeeze).

                      Got in touch with them. They are discontinued and not available for purchase. Thanks for looking.

                        Your wintergreen oil plan will work well on these parts. I did the same on mine not too long ago. Good as new, literally, after about 5 days in a 3:1 isopropyl alcohol:wintergreen mix. Keep the mix in a sealed jar after you're done - you can reuse it many times for other rubber stuff.

                          Yup got them soaking right now. Used Xylene as it seems to be what they use in Rubber Renue. May try 3D printing some in the future as I've seen some people have success with it. Want to get a printer for some of the side panels anyways, so it'll be something I'll look into.

                              Those are not for 1982 model "T". I wonder if they would work? Not a bad price for a set of 4.
