Lower Carb Boot problems

Had a funny thing happen with my '08 NRA Teryx the other day.

When I bought it last year, I put on Muzzys and a Dynojet programmable CDI. It was running like a top for about 8 months of light use.

About 2 months ago, I went out to ride it, and noticed that it was sucking air something fierce! You could hear it. Took the engine cover off, and noticed that for some crazy reason the front carb had came out of the lower boot. Wierd! Anyway, I put it back where it went, and it ran fine.

About 2 weeks ago, It started missing pretty bad. Hadn't done much with it over the winter so I figgured it was bad gas or spark plugs. Put new gas in it, and it didnt help. So, I took the engine cover off to get to the spark plugs. I remembered the carb problem from a couple of months ago, so I started it up with the engine cover off. I heard a slight air sucking after I started it up, so I grabbed the carbs and nudged it a little. The teryx started sucking air again and died. Wow, so this time it was coming from the back carb. I got to looking and it looked like the lower boot on the back carb was off... So, I took the ring off and noticed the boot was torn right where it met the ring. Hmmm... I baby this thing pretty much. I havent went over any rough terain for a LONG time. No idea how this happened...

So, Questions:

1) Anyone have the part number for the lower carb boots, front and back?
2) Anyone have a link to an online store to order these?
3) Anyone else had this problem?

Perplexed!

Scott...

Make sure your motor mounts are tight. I ripped a carb boot on my Brute Force before because the mount bolts loosened off.

Let me know if you are still looking for these. I don't stock a bunch of parts but can order stock OEM parts for all makes and models.

The part # is 14073 in the diagram and retails for $5.75.

Fuelatv,

Thanks, but I was able to find them on Babbitts. Ordered them, and they should be here in a week or so. I'm really interested in why this happened. It doesnt seem like this would be a motor mount issue cause the carbs are not bolted to the frame in anyway. If the motor mounts are loose, I would think they would move with the motor.

To an extent you are correct. The problem is that the back of the airbox is mounted to the frame and the rubber gromments do not allow much movement so when the motor moves slightly and the airbox does not, it could lead to the problem you are having. Most of the time the boot between the airbox and plenum absorbs most of the movement and if it doesn't it would cause the plenum to come off. In your case it appears that it is the lower carb boots.
