That thought did cross my mind. I might try using Rescue Tape to seal the holes. The holes are right on the edge of the boot where the shaft connects to the diff housing and the first articulation groove of the rubber. If I can get the shaft lifted enough to open the groove some, I should be able to get a few wraps of the tape around. I've used the tape for insulating my battery cables. And it seems to hold up well. I'm interested to see how it will hold up to grease and articulation. If it can stand it, then it will definitely be a good product to keep in your gear bag on the trail. I'll let you know how it works, assuming I can get the access to make the wraps... <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/patriot.gif" alt="" />
