    I decided to take my carb off for a good cleaning and I think I found my problem (stumble, surging at speed, etc)

    The intake boot on the head side is bad, the rubber section came right off the metal flange and is old, brittle and

    falling apart.

    SO....I called my local yamaha shop and they have to order it (about 5 days from california to Olympia wa.) and said it would be $83

    WOW....seems a bit steep to me.

    Do I just pay it or does anyone else know of a better place to get a quality part??

    (hoping I get answers soon as I want to get it on the way as quickly as possible)

    Wow! I would think you could find one for lower than that. I would use some radiator hose before forking out that much for one.

    It's on the head side, so I can't even be creative

    Google shop it or Ebay. There's tons of parts houses that sell OEM parts. Might get a better deal.

    You didn't say what year your TW is. The manifold boot (Yamaha calls it a "joint") and o-ring for my 2005 was about $30. plus shipping from Ron Ayers.



    You did order the o-ring, didn't you?

    I like to support my local dealer too. But not at more than double the price.

    Only a fool would attempt it, and God help me, I am that fool!

    Given what has been presented, the price seems a bit high... It now seems that the option is to shop in 'cyber-space' or down the street as prices vary enough to make 'us' notice.



    This is a personal opinion; most local dealers are unlikely able to match (comfortably) the prices offer by those 'in cyber space'. Keep that in mind. A good local dealer is valuable and worth supporting, even if you end up paying a 'bit more' for parts. Those that are marginal, "I say" who cares.



    We all need to decide if our 'local' source is worth supporting given what they are 'WILLING' to provide. Or is it to 'our' advantage to shop in cyber space and take a risk with delays, returns and money tied-up.... Gerry
    Take care my Friend.........

    I do all my parts shopping on the web, my dealer is 75 miles away. I do agree with supporting your local dealer as much as possible though.
