Intake boots at a cheap price on Amazon
 
I paid over $120 for a set of these a few years back but came across this a few minutes ago. Not sure about quality etc., price is pretty good though in case it helps someone here, about $20. Seems very cheap!

Might just be my suspicious mind. 19 Pounds Sterling is a lot more that $20 not clear if that is for each of 4 available ? Postage to cross the pond will be a hell of a lot more than you are accustomed to with USPS

Notice this in the upper right hand corner of the Amazon ad:

18.39
No sellers are currently delivering this item to the United States.

This is what I ordered and installed. Rubber looks good and only difference i see is that the 1 and 2 on the boot go to the opposite side of original. Pert fit fine and synch tube is in correct place.

Not quite sure exactly what you said in some of that post. That is a good price.

Some of the less expensive sets like these have had some minor issues you might want to keep an eye on.

1; the sync ports have fallen out of some (speaking from experience).

2; DO NOT use the paper gaskets that come with them. They fail and leak. Just a very thin coat of yamabond or equivalent works perfectly.

If you look at the joints they have a 1 or a 2 on the carb side. The original had the number 1 on the right and 2 on the left. These have 1 on the left and 2 on the right. It indicates what side of the engine to install on.

Never seen anything like that. Just 2 that fit the left and 2 that fit the right.
