Emergency CV boot repair

Sumarized version in next post

I thought I would post what I do in a situation where you are in the middle of nowhere and the ol CV boot gets a hole or torn. I've done this a few times now and it seams to work very well.
What you need, Electricle tape, zip ties, goop (rubbery glue, can find it at Canadian Tire).
What you do, well, this depends entirely on the situation. I'll mention situations I used these items on. First off, the goop sticks well to the cv boot rubber and not only acts as a glue, but also a sealent. I had a situation out in the middle of nowhere that i completely tore the boot in half (up and down while it is on the axle) not sure how it happend but had something to do with me climbing over a fallen tree, I think. I first use the goop and glued a small amount just under the rubber, maby 1/8" or so in. Then used the zip tie to secure it to the axle thus closing it off. then I put a crap load of the goop along the seam of the tear, all the way around. I put a wrapping of electricle tape over the area overlapping once. then used more zip ties along the length of the wrapping. Then went over again with electricle tape. i put another zip tie where the tape stoped to make sure the tape didn't come undone. This waterproofed the cv joint. I keeped it like this after and went to the fall marchand derby with it like this. I think I showed a few people there. Anyways, I just changed this boot and the greese inside was uncontaminated and clean. I used this on another situation with a small hole. I put the goop over the hole to act as a sealent, then wrapped tight enough with electricle tape that it would form to the boot, but not to tight that it would compress the boot. Upon taking this boot apart, once again it was sealed and no contamination. Even after going threw extream water. I have also used just the goop itself and it works well. Only temorary though as it will get rubbed off. It will hold your remaining grease in. I put these repaires to use after doing them and no problems. So if you want something just to get home this combination of items would defintly be adequate.
What do you guys use for emergency boot repair?

Sumarized version

Use goop (rubbery glue which you can buy at CT) to work as a glue/sealent for any holes, will adhere well to the boot and remain flexable. Electricle tape (because it can be stretched and formed to your cv boot, also adds to your water proof seal and strength of the repaire), zip ties (to holt a torn boot to your axle or use to sew/join your torn boot together). have used this combo to repair a few boots and works great.

thanks for the idea. this wouldn't have helped me the 2 times i ripped boots and seperated the axle...lol. no bearings or anything left, but i could have used the zip ties to hold my axle up and out of the way while i limped home...lol.

Plastic garbage bags, duct tape and plastic ties. Wrap the boot(or lack thereof) with the bag just a bit wider than the original clamps, tape the ends and the seam, couple ties for good measure and you are on your way. Did this on a Rincon and seemed to work great.

Can't belive I didn't think of using a garbage bag. Very good idea Great white, I will be carrying garbage bags from now on for complete boot tears that go beyond what I used before can do. Did the tape hold well on the seam? Was thinking it might leak after some water running. I guess if you carry that goop like me you can always use that to seal the seam aswell just to be safe. Anybody else wanna mention what they use?

Instead of a garbage bag, why not carry a piece of thick 3 or 5 mil plastic poly? Just a thought...

I tore a boot about 60 KM from home. I rode normally, through mud and extreme dust situations, and when I did a proper repair, the grease was dirty on the outside but everything inside the CV joint was clean. Cleaned up the joint and reassemble. No problems in the last 1300 KM since it happened
