Radiator hose

Postby greenbaypackfan » Mon Jun 13, 2016 1:07 pm



I have a 1996 gl1500 Interstate. I am currently changing engines. The person helping me cut the hose between the radiators. To replace it it's $72. My question is would a regular heater hose work there, or do I have to get a special one for it.

If it is this hose, 19502-MN5-000 HOSE, WATER (LOWER), it is $45.24 from Partzilla.com http://www.partzilla.com/parts/detail/honda/HP-19502-MN5-000.html. Buy the OEM hose.

The hose I need is 95001-75008-60m. It is only about 4 inches long, and connects the two radiators together. It is about 3/8 of an inch in Dia.. The original one is very firm and you cannot bend or collapse it.

Pricey hose at $58.58 from Partzilla http://www.partzilla.com/parts/search/Honda/Motorcycle/1996/GL1500I+A/RADIATOR/parts.html for its size.
But I would still go with the OEM hose if I were you.

Ebay would ge a place to buy one also. You can find used parts with low mileage bikes.
It's not what you buy, it's what you build.

Strange... Honda calls this "Bulk hose, fuel". ???????

Looks like a roll of Honda hose by the description. Maybe why the price is so amazing :D

Yes, I got the 5/16" Gates heater hose from Carquest (in Canada). It's a thicker walled hose than the original, so it won't kink when bending it. I paid about $2.00 for a 2 foot length. There's no way you should be paying $50+ for a 3 or 4 inch length of hose. My first option had been a fuel injection hose of that diameter, but I found out that it was not compatible with coolant, not to mention that it is also much more expensive. Hope you found the right stuff.
