Q&A: Suzuki T500 airbox inlet boot

Our CMM expert Steve Cooper answers YOUR questions!

Q: A few months ago one of your staff did a feature on his Suzuki T500 in which he mentioned about obtaining a replica airbox inlet boot? I bought the genuine part last year but found it went hard as nails and was very difficult to refit because it lost its flexibility.


I remember in the feature he had bought a new replica part from a supplier who made them. Would it be possible for you to let me have the supplier’s name please?

Steve say: Geez. That was three years ago! Oh all right, the answer is Claus Studios’ T500 inlet boot at www.claussstudios.com (note the ‘s’ x 3 in the middle) or 001 760 949 6659.
