One of my buddies tore the boot on his Rincon, he replaced just the boot and the CV is still in great shape(he caught it early). I asked him about it the other day and he said,"just make sure you clean the CV joint really good before you install the new boot." He cleaned his out with "brake cleaner" and made sure all the dirt and small particles were removed thoroughly. He did however had to buy a "banding tool" to crimp the band on securely, the tool was $12.00 from a local auto parts dealer.
