Well guys, I blew it.. trying to get the bike ready to ride tommorow, reinstalling the carbs and managed to crack the ear on one of the intakes from the carb to the head (right side front). I'm considering JB weld so I can ride tommorow... then order a new one... anyone have any thoughts otherwise.. or are in Central Illinois and want to bring one by.. hahaha

Adam, JB Weld would work for that, but it would have to be done very carefully, so that where the o-ring fits is smooth, and that the inside of the runner is smooth. I've use it in the past to repair cracked intakes on cars and it lasted the life of the car. But also, it must cure properly, so follow the instructions precisly. Good luck.:)

I've got some 1100 intake runners but don't know if they'll fit on the 1000. Anyone know? I'd ask Randakk but he's on vacation for this week.

I think the 1100 ones are close, but I'm sure I can get a set from ebay, no problem.

In terms of the fix, the crack didn't extend down to the o-ring groove or the mating surface... lucky there.
The JB weld is curing as we speak!

Being an AVID beer drinker.... I'm surprised to say there was no beer involved... seems odd though... I even brew my own, so it flows easily!

I did manage to "Best Offer" a set on ebay for 20 bucks for all 4, so we will see how they look when they get here.
