    I am aware that the boot/carb holder that mounts the carb to the motor intake is a discounted part. I need a new one. Surely there is a comparable boot out there for one of the other big brands. I highly doubt the engine designers at Husqvarna spec’d a carb boot that wasn’t already readily available at the time. Does anyone know where I can find a suitable replacement? There are some $10 China parts on EBay but I’d sure like to walk into a local parts shop and ask for the comparable Honda (or whoever) part. Any help would be much appreciated! Thanks!

    I don't have any info on a japanese bikes carb flange spigot that fits your 2007 TE450 for about 10 bucks but have you checked Halls Cycles in Springfield, Illinois. (217)789-0107 for the real deal original part.
    They have a huge selection of parts for the Italian era Husky's. If they don't have it, they have part locating service and can probably get it. You can also check Bills Motorcycles plus (BMP) in Oregon.

    Thanks! That’s good info. I’m totally new to the Husqvarna cult so your input helps a lot.

    If your not aware of the SWM brand name bikes. 2 years after BMW sold only the brand name "Husqvarna" to KTM in mid January of 2013. The manufacturing giant "Shineray" motorcycles firm from China bought and re-opened the original BMW owned factory in Varese Italy.

    In doing so they also purchased the Italian Husqvarna 4-stroke engine design program and all the tooling as well. They even re-hired many of the former employees from that factory.

    Although they have done some further design changes to these Italian era engines and added a few different sized models on the same platforms, as for the bikes themselves, many of the engine and chassis parts are interchangeable with the Husqvarna bikes of the same size that were made before 2008.

    I tried to find you a few pics of the 2007 TE450 and the 450/510 series engine and about the same from SWM. The SWM bike pictured is a 300 but it shares the same basic engine design as your 450 and if you look closely even the plastics look interchangeable.

    The info about SWM is great news! Thanks! I remember hearing something about this a while back on a podcast but completely forgot until you posted. It gives me hope that I can get some of the old rubber bits replaced and keep my old bike alive.

    Word is that the carb boot (intake manifold) for the 07 is a bit different than the SWM. That and pretty expensive. I decided to weld a bit of aluminum tubing to the flange that was inside my failed manifold. I used filler-neck hose to join my carb to the custom manifold. In addition the air box had many splits and cracks that I was able to repair with high strength glue and Flex Seal. The Flex Seal is great and the air box looks new.

    Sounds like you got it covered. Sorry the SWM piece in this case wasn't able to help you out.
    Isn't it nice to be able to weld aluminum though.
    Personally, I don't know how dirt bike owners get by without having the ability to weld aluminum.
    I bought my first Lincoln Idealarc 300/300 Tig back in 1978 at the age of 18. less than 6 months out of Highschool.
    I still have it in my shop a few blocks away from my house. It requires a 100 amp service breaker by it self.
    So every house I ever lived since then required some sort of electrical service upgrades.
    A year later, I bought a Lincoln SP 200 Mig welder.

    Right you are! Learning to weld is mandatory if you want to be useful around shop or farm. TIG machines aren't cheap but they are so much more versatile than other types of machines. I thought my Miller Aerowave was a relic but you've got me beat.

    Thanks for the bike advice!
