I've repaired a bunch of plastics with G/Flex.  You can use pigments to color match.  In fact, most 2 part epoxy and plastic can be pigmented.

I ordered some, just the small bottles.

Another upgrade I'm doing is swapping out the intake runners for a set from a later model.  The 94-95's didn't have air tubes on each intake, making carb syncing much more tedious and iffy.   96-98's had the air tubes on all the intakes so I got a used set from the net.  They are grubby but in nice shape.  This way, you can run a hose from each one , into the engine bay away from the carbs and boom I'll have individual sync hoses.

I think on most carb syncs the nozzle(?) that goes in the end of the tubes needs to be within a certain proximity to the vaccum source to work properly, might want to check on that for your tube length.

Length of hose won't make a difference, as the vacuum will read the same.  IMO, an SK flowmeter is the best option for syncing carbs.  It's testing for airflow and has greater accuracy.

Irk, that tool you posted is pretty sweet.  Mine is a Motion Pro though but it does let me sync with the airbox on.  Doc, it actually comes with fairly long hoses.  The pic i posted of the hoses is from my 97' stock yzf parts bike so those are stock length.  Seeing the newer setup on the 97 is what made me decide to buy the newer intakes for the 94'

In the instructions on the motion pro and on the Morgan carb tune, iirc  both state the little nozzle you poke in the end of tube needs to be within a certain distance  to the vacuum source to function correctly. I dont know how important this is but both carb syncs I have owned stated this.

I'll check on the total hose length when I go to setup the sync.

Until then I've decided that G/flex and fiberglass cloth was the way to go for this repair.

Impromptu bike stands.  The two engine/frame mounts used for the frame sliders are perfectly symmetrical and hold it just the right height. 
Front wheel is off for the new Dunlop swap asap.

What ever works man. I have hung bikes off the rafters with ratchet straps before.

Nice. G/flex is awesome. They recommend sanding plastics with 80 grit then a light flame polish with propane for the best adhesion.
