i need to replace a few of my factory cv boots. seems that no one in the area has them in stock and would take about a week to order . so i figured if i have to order, ill get some that are more heavier duty. what does everyone recommend i get for CV boots?

Call Hot Rod! only takes two days to get to your door and great prices!
X2...I got a stick in between one of mine rears a while back a junked the oe boot. Put one of the "universal" ones on because local dealer gave me a STUPID price for the oe replacement !!! The universal is made out of a softer rubber...got maybe 6 months out of it before a couple of pin holes came in it. James ordered me the oe replacement (at a KILLER price!!), it comes in a "kit" with 2 bottles of grease, new clips, new bands, everything you need. The bands may be a little tricky w/out the tool yamaha uses, not sure...I picked up a band tool from Napa for like 30 bucks, and use the bands they sell (they're a couple bucks a piece)...they work VERY well, and you don't need three hands to put them on...real tight and don't slip !!

Having done several of both over the years I have to say the Yamaha Factory kits are definitely worth a few extra bucks....!!!

If Hot Rod has them in stock you should get them from him for sure you won't beat his price and you will get them fast...
