Did you ever get that steel intake or is the one that broke today still the cast aluminum?
I have to feel that you are experiencing some unusually high vibrations to be be breaking these parts. I have the chrome steel intake on my first bike and have never had a problem but the second one has the cast intake. This engine has a little more vibration that my first but only time will tell.
I'd certainly try the steel intake if I were you or if you're handy with metal, fabricate your own. Might not be chrome but...so what, if it doesn't break?
