Carb slide diaphragms

Saw these replacement diaphragms on another forum and thought I'd post them over here. Looks like a lot less expensive option than replacing the whole slide with OEM and might help keep some folks who don't know any better from giving saber cycle their hard earned cash for theirs.

I don't know. There's lots of forum posts with people claiming it does but there's also cyanoacrylate manufacturer's pages that say their stuff is 100% gasoline resistant.

Ok. Have you heard any success stories on this ? It saves a lot of money. I just would hate to do it twice
