Default Repaired separated intake manifold

My first repair with RTV didnt work, because it wouldnt adhere to the rubber side. So i cleaned and scrubbed both surfaces with alcohol and reattached them with JB weld, making sure i covered and sealed every area. Now the bike idles an drives more smoothly than it ever has since i've owned it..... This time, it should last the life of the bike.

I pulled on it REALLY hard to make sure after it dried. Why would i waste money on another factory unit that will just separate again in 20k miles? As i said before, it idles perfectly smooth now with no intake leaks.

Buy a new throttle body adaptor and new O-rings too.
Have you seen how much the intake moves when the engine is running? JB weld ain't gonna hold.

20K miles? How come mine lasted 7 years and 80K miles?

What does this have to do with either of those? It's a simple issue of improving a part instead of spending money on the same part with insufficient lifespan.

I wandered the same thing about politics and sides.
But I agree that it probably won't last. The boot is flexible for an important reason. The JB Weld has created a very rigid section on the boot. I've used JB Weld for many repairs on old equipment, but only for rigid applications.

JB weld on a properly prepared surface is extremely strong. I didn't only apply it to the top, but along the mating surface between the rubber and the aluminum plate. I'll remove it periodically to check adhesion and post updates.

Just my way of saying that I'm not disagreeing with you just to disagree but I don't think that your idea is a very good one. Even if the boot only lasts 20k, $62 is really cheap insurance for the next 20k. Especially when you spend that much on an oil change kit for just a few thousand miles of assurance. I wouldn't take my chances on burning a valve or having detonation from a lean condition ruin my engine for just trying to save $62.
