Not really. When you consider how much the tooling costs, they're cheap.

That said, I can recover existing manifolds for about half that.

Hi, i am a new NS owner and thankful this community is here. Tons of great resources here. The first set this gent sold by auction sold for $135 which i missed out on. I emailed him to ask about more and he relisted a set at $300 and has since lowered them to the current price. A far cry from $135 but reasonable considering availability i guess. While tearing my bike down to go through it i noticed 2 boots are very cracked so it looks like i will be ordering a set.

Hi Chris,

Welcome to the forum.

See the post above yours. Alastair is pretty handy with re-manufactured manifolds. He's had a bit of practice...
If it ain't broke, fix it 'til it is.

Currently working my way through 15 sets destined for Japan..... I seem to be doing little else.

Amusingly, someone mentioned the price to the eBay seller telling him that he'd rather support the "gentleman in England" Not sure you 'd call me a gentleman would you Mark?

I can honestly say that I've never considered using your name and the word "Gentleman" in the same sentence. :wink: :lol: :lol:

Alastair,
That was me who replied to the ebay post.
What would a set of intake boots cost ? As expected the ones that came off my bike are drying up and cracking a bit.

Thanks

Hi Chris

£100 a set. I'm in the middle of a 15 set batch at the moment so it might take a few weeks.
