Frequently Asked Questions

All Hot Foot Moto LLC products are made from tough, long lasting polyurethane material. Polyurethane is stronger, more wear resistant and less prone to cracking than standard rubber parts.


How long does shipping take?

Most orders are shipped within 3 to 4 business days. Occasionally, we will run out of stock on a certain part. If that occurs, you will be notified via email. All parts are poured as they are ordered. Please do not expect same day shipping.


Do you accept returns?

Yes, as long as the product has not been mounted or used. Once you mount the product on the motorcycle, it is yours to keep. All custom color orders are non-returnable.

If you have any problems with our products, you must show a proof of purchase for any warranty replacements. This can be your original receipt or a copy of your credit card statement showing the charge. 


How long do I have to return my order?

An RMA number must be requested within 30 days from date of delivery. If you do not request a return number, it will not be accepted.


Will you refund the shipping charges?

No. The shipping charges will not be refunded. The only time that we refund shipping charges is if the error is on our part. If you received free shipping, the shipping charges incurred by us will be deducted from the price of the return.

How long will an intake manifold last?

Intakes are made from a polyurethane material that is very durable and has some stretch to it. Air boots and intake manifolds are molded from the same material. The intake manifolds will typically last 5 years on water cooled bikes, sometimes even longer. We recommend replacing intakes at the end of every race season on air cooled bikes. The air cooled bikes run much hotter than newer models. The hotter that an engine gets, the harder it is on the intake glue that we use.

If you notice an air leak, shut your bike down immediately. We will send a replacement for free. You do have to ship the intake back to us for inspection. If you are using a pod filter, the air filter needs to have some type of support. Without any support, the carburetor and pod filter bounce up and down while you are riding the bike. This will cause an intake manifold failure.

You must use a M6 socket head allen bolt for installation if the intake has polyurethane around the mounting holes. Larger hex head bolts will cut into the material. 

Mounting Instructions

If you are intalling a new air boot or intake manifold, make sure that there is clearance between any other moving parts or exhaust items. The exhaust will melt the polyurethane if it touches for long enough. If the rear shock touches the airboot, it will rub a hole in the boot. Some air boots may require modifications to the face of the boot where it mounts. You can use a belt sander or dremel tool. If you receive the part and are not satisfied with the quality, return it for a refund. If you do not feel like making the required modifications needed, return it for a full refund. Some mono shock models may require some light modifications.
