New Hoses needed

Post by jstcraig » 07:07 pm Jan 16 2021

Well the bottom tank is holed :sad:, so time to replace if and finding one was easy surprisingly but where does one find hoses for the early water cooled models ?
I know this topic has been before but wasn’t resolved as far as I could see, the question remains which if any later models coolant hoses are compatible with earlier models?

Is that an oil painting on canvas? :-)

The second looks like a huge mess.

Some have had luck with SOME of the later model hoses after a little cutting and fidgeting.

Nice coolant testing kit, though in this instance you probably figured it out without the tester. :-)

😂 I’m glad you appreciate fine art, the second pic was the result of .8 bar of pressure 😁.
The same retailer has the later model hoses which look close, now with your invaluable input I will purchase those as well.
Stay safe and well 👍👍👍
The pressure tester became necessary after my old one from the 70’s gave up the ghost not that I’m expecting the plastic fantastic setup to last as long 😁

There are a couple of threads on here from the past where people bought the later hoses and tried to make them work on the previous model. Look through those before deciding.

I wondered if it popped from pressure testing. Kinda cool actually.

New Radiator has arrived now waiting for the Silicone hoses to arrive from Czechoslovakia lol
Shiny new ones actually look quite solid 👍

These arrived today, as I was informed by those who have been before me there will a little fiddling and adjusting. So if you have an Sr89-91 and you need coolant hoses 95-06 200/220 will fit, hope this will help someone and keep another KDX200Sr riding 👍
