    Looking for some rubber sealer type stuff..

    I just found a used front brake cable upper boot(NLA)for a CB200T that is in very good cond. except for a couple small holes where it wraps around the cable area.Do any of you know if there is some type of glue that will seal the rubber ? I have some black ABS pipe sealer/glue but I didn't want to try it until I asked here to see if there is something better;I'd like to apply the black(or clear)sealer from the outside when i find some.
    I want to have the type of stuff that dries and seals but doesn't stay tacky like rubber cement.
    I've tried using Silicone caulking before but it doesn't seem to stay on the rubber for long.
    I prefer if it can be applied w/ a small brush..

    I don't know everything, nor, have I met the one who does.

    It's hard to have too many motorcycles, but easy to have too many batteries and tires.

    I looked at Tractor Supply here in Delmont,PA. today but no luck.,I imagine Home Depot or Lowes should have some so I'll try those places about 10 miles away.

    You can get small tubes of clear silicon at most hardware stores. Silicon will certainly work, but may not look great. If you're looking for black, maybe try Plastidip. I used it to repair some holes on a black vinyl convertible and it worked well. The one I used was a spray, but I think they make it in liquid form.
