Not unreasonable imo.

Its not 'just a rubber seal' after all

Someone has had to design, manufacture, produce and store it until you've required it.

You obviously didn't grasp what I was saying. You can pay more for windscreen wipers, and they're only a bit of rubber with an even higher mass production.

Re: air box seal

You think 12 for a part is a lot?
While it's o my rubber it's probably a low volume item produced in small batches which puts the cost up a lot




That's being said is it like a o ring if so get one of them

Re: air box seal

Rubber seal between air filter box and carb missing

Presume a leak here means air not being sucked through filter and mixture is weak, so is this seal important to replace??
