This question would obviously concern only those that would know or had
experience with this problem as follows.........
I am having a problem with the carb intake boots staying on the carb
flanges! They seem to be made TOO SHORT!
I have had to use hose clamps to keep them on, and there is hardly enough
*** to even do that !!!!
Since the machine is still under warrantee, I called my dealer instead of
writing to Cat, since I figured they would only steer me back to my dealer
Today I got e-mail from my dealer that AC will NOT replace my boots with the
CORRECTED DESIGN boots they have on the 1999 model !!
I have seen these new boots at an AC show last spring on a carbed '99
ZR-500, so I know such a thing exists. I just can't understand why I was
not notified and now seem to be turned down for a replacement/upgrade to a
design SHORT COMING!!!! (no pun ment here, I'm a bit miffed!)
If anyone else has had this problem corrected through AC or their dealer,
please let me know, I could use some fellow testimony here (o;
Thanks for anyone concerned enough to write back personally or publicly....
