Air box rubber boot

If someone has a spare klr 650 or 250 air box rubber boot, could you please take some measurements. Length, IDs, and ODs. The klr 600s are discontinued and I need to find some kind of replacement. I found one on ebay that I hope will work. Part # 14073 1228.
Thank you.

I'll measure one tomorrow, a 650.

Tom,
Hate to bug you, but I was wondering if you got around to measuring the air box boot.
Thanks, Tim

Hi Tim,

Busy day, installing a new radiator and getting some sewing done on a tank cover.

But yes! I did finally get it done.

Here ya go:



As you can see, it has a bit of a bend to it. The important length dimensions seemed to be from the face of the airbox to the fac of the carb, so I've given you those measurements; the photo is with the boot on its side, of course.

The 2.29" is the inside diameter of the boot, as it encircles the carb opening. This should be the same as your 600, as the carbs are the same.

Hope it's what you need!

Tom,
you are the man. That's exactly what I needed. Now, when I get home from work, I can measure my old one. Hopefully, it's close to my old one and it will work. Can't wait to get it running again.
Thank you so much. Really appreciate it.
Tim

Glad to help. If it is too short, that's a problem. If it is too long, you might be able to bodge it to work. Here's what the inside of the carburetor inlet side looks like.

Thanks again Tom.
I did some measurements and they're close. I think I'm going to order the part and give it a try. Hopefully it works.
Thanks, Tim
