Carb rubber #1
I see the carb to airbox is available for the dt400, but not the carb to barrel, mine is a bit sorry looking, anywhere doing a repro?

There was a place in the UK that sadly went out of business a while back... they were only like $30.

You didn't say which model DT400 but DC Plastics in the US has some of the really nice "urethane rubber" type or whatever it is that will likely never rot for $109.95

Here's a link to their Yamaha offerings and you might contact them if they don't list what you need as they may have others available. (I bought one for a 175 they didn't list but could get for me a few years ago)

I wonder what happened to their remaining stock - not all of it would have gone in their closing down sale.

I recall someone else posting a link to one some time back .
Hot Foot Moto was the seller . Not sure if that is a business trading name ,
or an Ebay trading name . Ask Dr. Google .

Thanks Swoop... I was trying to remember the name of the manufacturer of the good reproduction manifolds. I believe that DC sells the Hot Foot Moto product... price used to be the same from either company.

I also just remembered that Yuniparts was the name of the company in the UK that went under.... I bought a bunch of stuff from them at their "moving sale" and then a couple of months later someone here said it was a "going out of business" sale...

That's too bad for a couple reasons... one is I'd bought good parts from them over the years... good prices and fast shipping that didn't cost much considering the distance.... and two was I might have bought more at their special sale if I knew they were going out of business... for example they had boxes of 6v bulbs which are expensive here and even after shipping cost to the US it came out to only 50 cents a bulb or cheaper.

I have had experience with hot footmoto and It wasnt good . A friend of mine was actually a partner in the business. So I trusted the product. I bought fork wipers that were a reproduction of Gators , But the were junk !! Full air pockets sepecially where they are supposed to seal. HA ! HA! there was just as good as not using wipers at all. It took me about 2 months to get my money back and several phone calls before I was refunded my money, I even ordered 2 sets and both were the same . I don know if thier carb mounts are any good and I dont want to even try it . I guess they dont even inspect stuff before shipping .
