Samco Hoses

Thinking of putting some of these Samco hoses on my 990 S this fall while I do my water pump and fall oil change. Anyone using them or heard anything about them.

Do a search because this was covered a while back, and I seem to remember something about fitment issues, although KTM Twins is pretty reliable about selling parts that fit.

Sorry I can't be more help than that.

Cant comment of the KTM version, but I have them on my Husky and they are a top of the line product. The silicone is very thick and something like 4-5 ply.

Here is a cross section of the hose on my Husky:



If you order them make sure to get the clap kit. It's high quality and has rolled edges so it does not cut into the silicone:

Put a set on two different bikes so far. In both cases the fit was perfect and never had a problem with either of the bikes after the install.

Best bang for buck mod if you have to replace any of the existing hoses. Do it once and never look back.

You can also get the good hose clamps from any BMW dealer, they are made in germany. The rolled edges are the key to them not tearing into the hose.

Samco hoses

All, I've read about these hoses and have considered installing on my 950SE. However, I don't know if there is a kit that fits this bike. I emailed Samco and got a canned response back suggesting their website would be the place to check. Did so and still come up wondering...

After reading this thread and another here I'm not sure if the 950SE has hoses available from Samco...

Thoughts?

I put on Samco hoses this year. I like them so far. It took some cutting on two of the hoses to make them fit.
