I hope your bike was running like crap, and hope that is why you put your bike in the shop.

Those isolators will get hard and brittle over time. I wish I replaced mine when I had them off but I did not. So far, I have not had a problem. If and when the carbs come off again, they will be replaced.

I installed a 97 carb but used my old 88 isolators.:headbanger: :doh: At the time, I was more concerned with diagnostics than preventative maintenance.

That is a lot of work just two replace them two rubber pieces.
