    Default Mystery Carb Boot?

    Hi everyone,
    I was getting prepared to put new head gasket on my 1980 Gs250T. I was taking my carbs off, and while I was doing that I heard a rattling noise coming from the airbox. I shined a light into the box and found this boot. I was able to fish it out with a pair of pliers, and while examining it I see it says Gs450 on the said along with the part number 13881-44100 and a "R" for what I'm assuming right. I looked in the other side of the box to see another one in it. Is this part necessary? If it is where can I get a replacement because it's hard and deformed. I tried lookin the part number up on eBay but it came up with no results? Would a similar boot from a different bike work for it, what bike could I get it from. And if it was also used for the 450 why cant I find any replacements for sale?

    According to the GS250T parts schematic the numbers are the same.

    Those intake boots play a vital part in forming the gas flow into the carb mouth. The bike will usually run without them, but not as well as it should.

    I have checked every place I could think of. it seems that the part was discontinued. But while looking on eBay I found some that are for the CB550 at a good price. Is it possible that they will fit on the 250? I think that they should be the same size. Sorry for taking so long to follow up, I've been busy with the engine and other projects. Thanks.

    I would rather trust my bike to a "QUACK" that KNOWS how to fix it rather than a book worm that THINKS HE KNOWS how to fix it.

    Thanks, they had some other parts I needed. I sent them an email seeing if they have what they claim.
