If the engine to radiator hoses are made of the same material they are worth a few bucks because you will never have to deal with them again . The small hoses are standard 5/8 hose so I replaced all mine from bulk at a cost of a couple bucks worth of material . Useing heavy duty clamps that fit the bigger hose cost a couple hours and a bit of cussing but like I said I wont deal with them again . The KTM hose is EPDM rubber which is about the lowest quality hose available short of something from china or india . Extended contact with oil it will turn to jelly . SEYA
Are the two hoses for oil between the oilpump and the oiltank included in the "KTM-13" set?
