Yes it will cause it to run lean and you carb adjustments will be all over the place. This is not a good thing.

I have one in my parts box but I'm not just anywhere.:banghead::busted::D

That will definitely cause it to run lean and needs to be replaced. Have you tried the local dealer?

yeah I called around everywere and no one seems to have it in stock....what should i do?Oh yeah and the last time i rode it .I took it back home and the radiator didnt have any coolant in it at all?I no it had some before i rode.when i put the coolant back in there it doesnt leak???It only does it when its running I guess....

Seen this problem many times. Temporary fix is to rtv (high temp red sealant you can find it at Wal-Mart or any automotive store). be sure to clean an dry the boot well. Apply around entire boot not just in the crack and let dry overnight. this will work until the new boot arrives.

Try it... yes it is jerry rigging....but it works.
