Repair Air intake Hose

mark patterson /

On my suzuki fa50 theres a small hole in the air intake hose. It connects the carb to the air filter. https://www.google.com/url?sa=i&source=images&cd=&cad=rja&uact=8&ved=2ahUKEwidtLfUnJjfAhVgHTQIHYUXBSkQjRx6BAgBEAU&url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.treatland.tv%2FOEM-suzuki-fa50-stock-carburetor-rubber-coupler-p%2Foem-coupler-13881-02220.htm&psig=AOvVaw28-KIMPjcAot3-8WYgNKGy&ust=1544633051883652 . Thats the part im talking about. Whats the best way to repair a hole in it? Would shoe goo work?

Re: Repair Air intake Hose

Shoe Goo would work as well as anything .

I'd ruff the area around the hole and thoroughly clean that area with rubbing alcohol .

Let that dry and apply the Goo .

Probably last forever or until the tube gets too hard to do much good .

Thanks for the Treats link , but the tube is actually cheaper and likely better quality from Suzuki .

Just in case you want a new one :

Use this:

Make sure you let it cure for a few days, or it will not work(edited)

Unless he already has that^ , why wouldn't he simply buy a new tube for about the same price ?

He asked how to repair it, I answered.

When OEM or even mildly ok quality parts are available, it's usually better to replace rubber components.

I discovered this when trying to replace the unobtainable Airbox union in my Cagiva Elefant 125, so I thought I would share.

Really have to let it cure for 48 hours to have it work ?
