Order a different color and spray it.
Ha! Sure glad I didn't order black...
Sure like to give you a pic of my new Oil Drain Hose from Craig Johnson, CJdesigns. Just not in position to do that right now.
The hose looks professional with clear plastic encasing the braided stainless steal wrap. No problem with the hose rubbing around in the skid plate area. The hose ends and caps are anodized high quality hydraulic fittings. The inside diameter looks fairly large so oil should drain quickly.
I'm ready to install on my next oil change. If you email CJ I think he will be able to send you a drain hose quickly.
I've never met CJ but he will treat you like a friend and his work is very professional. So the bump to a good guy.
Edit cause I ain't got no grammar>
Hmmm... my parts arrived yesterday and my "black" adapter part somehow became "blue" when it arrived. It's a very dark blue, and since it's going to mount on the bottom of the oil tank it'll probably remain blue.
(Maybe if I'm feeling a little too vain I'll spray it quick with some black Rustolum?)
Ditto what sierrajeep said.... But it's at the bottom and if they are looking that close, well then....

Does anyone have an actual hose length measurement that they are happy with? I see "about a foot....."
I'd like to cut it before I break the bike down for the installation, it's cold out!
I literally cut it right at 12inches.
So what's the consensus....
How many oil changes are you going to go before you pull the left tank and check the oil tank screen?
I check it every three oil changes.
CJ...sent you an email...I'll take one of them drain hoses for my 950 if you have any left...email has paypal info.
I do it when I check valves, which is every three or 4 oil changes (it ends up being every winter, at 12-15k intervals, which seems to work).
I check this every Valve check. (when the tanks are off) About every 10,000 miles. It's a very tall screen, and would take a lot stuff to cover it completely and cause an issue imo.
I have them ready to go. Email sent. thanks.
Recieved mine, its a beauty. Nice workmanship, you'll be happy.
does anybody ever find these screens at least partially plugged after initial break in period is over? Mine is always clean, all of them
Same here. But I like to check em periodically just in case
I'll have a small batch of custom ORANGE and black fitting hose kits in the shop this Wed or Thurs, if interested.
