GL1200 radiator hose's "CHEAP"

Post by WINGER3 » Mon Feb 09, 2015 8:33 pm

I'm replacing my timming belts and decided to replace the radiator hose's since I have it off. Well in checking the price for them (made mistake of cutting them off) I almost dropped dead at the price's. Just as I had done in the past, I went to Pep Boys with the hose's and found a 98% match for both hose's on one hose from them. The hose is made by DAYCO (USA) #70834, cost $16.98. One end is all most a perfect match for the top hose and works great, the other end is for the lower hose and is a perfect match. Just remember that the auto guys carry a lot of hose's in many configerations befor you go broke buying OEM from dealer or on the net, like me you can be lucky and find it "CHEAP". Ride safe and save some money. :mrgreen:

Yes costs a bunch of money to have the name "Honda" printed on a part instead of "Dayco or Gates".
