Silicon radiator hoses performance advantage?

I see Jitsie has silicon hoses for trials bikes. I know you can spruce up your bikes looks with different colors.

Is there a cooling advantage with silicon hoses?

Also the one time use clamps, Yeah or neah when replacing the hoses / repair

I had searched the forum and didn't see any info on theses?

Thanks
Terry

I think its more of a durability advantage - they wont crack over time. Mostly bling, but alittle function too. Also, those clamps aren't one time use, you just have to know how to unbuckle and buckle them. They sell a tool for huge $$$$, that makes it easy, but I just use a needle nose vise grip. If you look at them close, you can see how they work. There may be a jim snell video on them as well. not sure.

I agree, prolly hold up better to heat exposure but can't imagine any flow or cooling advantage.

Thanks for pointing me to Jim Snell's video. I have seen several of Jim's video's but have kept the water pump hoses installed when working on the side cover.

The video clamp removal and install is after 6 minute mark. Great video for upgrading to the 2015 water pump assembly to the older models.
