Do I need to remove carbs to replace the intake boots? Also --where do you get replacement parts ? Lastly---should I replace the clamps at the same time??

Thanks---- getting ready for winter service!!!!!

No, they just pop off. Make sure you line up the notches though. Clamps should be fine.

So what sort of service are you doing that requires taking off the boots?

Hiya' Nam.

Searching around it appears that those boots are out of production and no longer available through Mother Honda.

I could suggest a trip through Flea-Bay. Specifically, give Power Sports Nation Flea-Bay Store an e-mail and ask if they might have some on hand.

How many do you need, and as Chris asked, why? Do you have one or more that are cracked and leaking, or are you just wanting to replace them for general principles?

Was just going to replace them this winter---no problem at this time. Maybe since they are that hard to find i will just leave them alone!!!!

i think you`ll find that the boots are premnetly bonded to the intake pipes and not meant to be removed from the intake pipes ( tubes )

:waving:In the 1980-1983 Honda GoldWing Service Manual it says, Caution: Do not try to remove the rubber couplers from the intake pipes. They are bonded in place for precise alignment.

Keep the old boots/intakes. Suggest using a hairdryer or wait for warm weather to soften the boots during re-attachment. I hit them with a rubber hammer, carefully.

You can remove the boots w/o carbs, but not the other way around.

I assume you want to clean the carbs?

Does anyone know the intake pipe bolts torque value on a 1982 GL1100A?
