Before I pay the Honda dealer more than $40 for the four o-rings for the crossover tubes, I thought I'd check to see if there is a good, less expensive alternative. Anyone know of anything out there? Thanks.

Yes. Simply take your old ones down to a GOOD automotive shop, and have the ID, OD, and thickness matched. Do some phoning around first, and save the mileage. O-rings run from $.50 (questionable quality) to $4.50 (for really good quality). Honda is a burn on stuff like that. Ride safe.

Thanks, Straightwings, for the good advice and quick response. And, gl, based on the strength of your recommendation, I ordered the kit from huntech2006 on eBay. Didn't even know there were gaskets to deal with, but thought I'd better get 'em. Many thanks.

WOW.
Care to name the stealer as Honda's suggested retail price is $1.55 each.

Sure, Ken. It's Honda Powersports East in Bear, Delaware, but I think it probably wasn't deliberate. They're considered a reputable dealer; I didn't give him a part number. Maybe it included the fuel tubes too?

Wish I had seen your post first; could have saved a couple bucks. I've already got the o-rings (and gaskets) coming from Huntington Tech. Oh, well.

Yep, I bought the same O-ring kit from Harbor Freight. It is great if you like o-rings. Not so much if you NEED o-rings. :)
