Alternatives for $89 radiator hose.

Post by FluffyDog6 »



Between the two radiators there is a small hose that is listed as part 22 and costs $89!


What size fuel line -- maybe 8mm -- would be a good replacement for this less than a foot of tubing that is so grossly over-priced?

The original is listed as 7.5mm, but I can't find that size in the local auto part store.

probably expensive because it is silicon? maybe summit racing or others and look for turbo oil cooling hose? maybe look around an aviation parts supplier?

That is just bulk hose that you buy at the dealer. The $89.00 is for a full roll! You only need to buy a foot of it for a few dollars. You will not find it at a normal autoparts store because it is metric. Get the metric hose on everything on this bike. Non metric will either be too tight and cause stress on the hose, or too loose and cause a leak.
