Figured I'd share a little mod. I ditched the CV carb on my QR250 and went with a genuine Mikuni 30mm round slide. Very cheap, and very responsive carb on this quad! However, it will not fit the stock airbox tube.

After starring at it for weeks I finally found a solution. A $12 Front CV boot.

I had an extra, so I chopped the small end off with some metal shears, spread it, and clamped it over the carb hole on the airbox. The CV end is exactly the right fit for the carb!

I will have to report back after running, but the soft boot may collapse under vacuum. If it does, I may take some 1/16 welding rod and make ribs or a coil to fit inside to prevent collapse. Here are some pics. Not sure if brilliant or ridiculous.
