I have a 2005 Yamaha Bruin that never really ran right. Decided to pull it out of the garage and do something with it. After cleaning out the mice nest, I checked spark.(ok) checked fuel flow to the carb (ok) , then noticed that the carb boot to intake pipe was separated. Guys, I am stumped as there appears to be no clamp holding the rubber boot to the intake pipe. I am baffled. How does the carb attache to the engine as it appears that it just rests against the pipe without any clamp, etc. There is a clamp on the carb side of the boot but nothing on the intake side. PLEASE HELP. I cannot imagine that Yamaha would not secure the boot to the intake pipe. Thank You all

What side of the intake are you talking about? Between the carb and cylinder head or between carb and airbox?

The carb / airbox boot is clamped at both ends.

The carb to cylinder head boot is clamped on the carb side, but bolted to the cylinder head using 2 bolts. These usually fail and separate.

It is the connection between the rubber boot and the intake tube. It appears that there should be a clamp or some kind of mechanical connection I am trying to attach a picture with a yellow arrow showing the point of failure. I hope my pics shows clearly the interface that I am talking about. Perhaps this is the point of failure as I just do not see how the carb and boot should just rest up against the intake tube without some sort of mechanical connection. Thank You so much for your advice.

That carburetor adapter boot requires replacement. There is no other clamp supposed to be in it. It is a molded rubber and metal peice, with the only clamp being on the carburetor end once the carb is installed.

Look at any online parts diagrams under "Intake" diagram. You'll see a picture of it with part numbers.
