Thanks! Back when I had the nighthawk I was eager to get to something bigger after a few months of riding. But since I sold it and got the katana, I've wanted something smaller again. Funny how that works

Well, looks like I won't have a runner for a little while longer. I put my spare manifold in hot water to loosen up the rubber. It didn't really work, and I noticed this crack, which runs pretty much all the way around. It's not all the way through the rubber, but I figure it wouldn't last long and it would need to be replaced anyways. This does make me a bit more interested in trying to make a dual carb setup out of the two manifolds I have...

There is a self fusing rubber tape that will fix that.  Rustoleum makes some.  I'll link it if I can find it.

I used it on my cx 3 years ago as a temp solution and it is still holding up.  No air leaks.  Looks like new.

Make sure its all clean and stretch it good, it only fuse s if stretched out right.  It literally becomes one solid piece of rubber.  Fuel stabil too.

CAL,
I have a fresh manifold for you from a low mileage bike w/ the # stamped KR3 on top and the rubber part is 100% pliable and solidly molded to the aluminum;I can do it for $5+ shipping in the smallest box from SW PA.
I tried uploading a few pics but it wouldn't work.

I think I'll take you up on that! The rubber on mine is pretty hard. And looks like there might be a couple cracks on the aluminum bonded part.
Think it'll fit in one of the small priority mail flat rate boxes?
