Thumbs down Chinese Intake Boots - BAD! BEWARE!!!!

XS11 Friends...…

As usual, ya' get what you pay for!

I purchased a set of cheap intake boots from China. They looked GREAT (at first glance) and I IMMEDIATELY ordered another set (before installing the first set).

When I finally got around to installing the first set, I quickly realized they had put the tuning ports in the wrong position(s) on the boots. Basically, they put the left ports in a location appropriate for the right boots and vice-versa. When the carb port is oriented properly, the tuning port is wrong and vice-versa here too. See the photos here I sent to the seller...…





Just try and explain this to someone that doesn't speak your language well! The seller's wanted them shipped back for a refund. Ain't wasting the time for that.....

I WAS able to make them work by plugging the port on the inside boot and adding another using ports from the bad set. Without some advanced tools, this "repair" would be impossible.

The "BOOTS" are very nice.... too bad they couldn't put the tuning ports in the correct locations.

BUYER BEWARE OF CHEAP DEALS FROM CHINA!!!!

Thanks for the heads up. Hopefully this saves others from disappointment.

I bought some too, and was told that this their first venture with this product and wanted to know the problem.I told her, and asked if she wanted pictures. She said no, and refunded me. I bought similar ones and they were fine.
