too much orange?... Nah!
i done my water in Orange & oil in Blue hoses
where fore come these blue hoses you speak of... Samco?
Oil hoses were not samco but are same type silicon hoses - were on ebay ASI the brand approx 6 yrs ago
just see the blue hose don't have any with it apart
Cheers V2TLS, are your (blue, oil) hoses formed, like Samco or generic pieces?
All my hoses are now getting on, 13 years old and should be renewed. I'll delve further into the cesspit of ebay :)
Ebay - i asked for blue
Watching the hose thing with great interest as mine are nearly 14 years old and I feel that it is time for some preventative maintenance.
Me too, haven't heard anything bad about the bling orange silicone ASI ones & there must be some out there with a few miles on them now? I have heard it mentioned that you need to get the right kind of hoseclip for them, be interested to see exactly what they look like.
I have had the orange asi hoses on mine for over 50000 klms. No issues at all.
Bike now has 70000 so I should do the oil lines now.
You can never have too much orange.......at last count, I think I had 13 different shades of orange on my bike......I sure wish all the vendors would get together and decide on one hue of orange.
Oh, and by the way......you missed getting the KTM orange oil fill cap!
Bugger, now I know my life is incomplete.
Yes I have heard that some hose clamps will cut the silicone hoses and also they can be more slippery than normal rubber so again, the appropriate clamps are good in the long run. What sort of ones you running Mr Mcguyver?
Hey DeeCee, the hose clamps for silicone hoses are not the std perforated type... Designed so they don't chew up the hose, Samco sell hose clamp sets to match their hose sets. I also bought same clamps from a local speed shop online, have to dig out the paperwork to check who they were, they where identical, S/S and sized to hose diameter.
Close inspection of my original hoses showed up lots of age cracks... whilst new hoses aint cheap, it's peace of mind and might save a long walk repeating over and over... Fcuk, fcuk, fcuk!.. Shoulda...
Sounds like the hose clamps I would be looking for.
Couldn't agree more about the long walk with time to contemplate a little cost cutting measure.
I am looking at replacing the radiator cap on my 2003 640 Adv... standard for the bike is 1.4bar (written om the current original cap) / 19,6 psi (info from the part no.).
The shop only has a 1.8bar on the shelf at the moment...
Any pro and cons on fitting a higher pressure cap?
Hi DeeCee, ah the long walk.. had a few of those :|
I got a set of the special clamps here... http://www.onlineracingspares.com.au/p/samco-hose-clip-kit-ktm-625-smc-ktm5/CKKTM5
Unfortunately currently out of stock (doh)
But you might try here :)
temporary measure if you have to... what state are your 03 hoses in?
Ah yep, so the type with indentations to form the 'thread' rather than perforations. Usually a better clamp anyway. Norma brand ones are common over here. If you want to go all factory-like & keep the crimp on clamps at the waterpump, see if your local engineering supplies shop has them - known as Oetiker clips. Crimp them on with end nippers.
Hi Clintz, yep, Oetikers are very factory, but out in the field can be a pita to service, tracked down a local supplier of the S/S worm type clamps in all sizes.... Foaley Performance: https://www.fpstore.com.au/collections/jcs-hose-clamps.
Interesting developments over in the BST Bible thread... Derek (Motolab) knows stuff! Seems early carb advice was not the best in the long run... I drilled my throttle slide in the early days.
Slide Guide just a little worn!
Holey cow......do you have a needle left?? How oval is the emulsion tube hole??
The obvious con of having the extra pressure escape through the hole where it just blew a hose off?
