Rebuilding front caliper on a YZ400F and need caliper boots. Dealership says, not a serviced piece. Where can I find these boots?

The caliper seal kit (3JD-W0047-00-00) appears to include the piston seals and boots.

If Yamaha cannot come up with anything, check Honda. Usually their rubber boots work just fine. Sometimes they are shaped differently, but do the same thing.

That kit is 4 pieces no boots. I'm going to check another flavor and make something work. Thats just crazy. I know i'm not the first to need these.

Honda has the boots about 12 bucks for both.. I went with the same year bike. Why would honda have them and not yamaha???? The boots look and fit the same. Problem solved..if they were all that easy i would be bored.

Yamaha sells a lot of parts as assemblies vs breaking down each and every little piece. I suppose its easier for them to deal with. It sure sucks when you need the little part.
