Hi Chris, try sourcing a hose that is more sturdy. I see you're in the UK, so you might not be able to buy from McMaster-Carr, but their website can help you find options that may be best suited for your use. I attached a screen grab of the selections I made ...My 1098 swapped 916 is still going well but I do have a small issue that rears it's head now and then, on the horizontal cylinder there is a small coolant stub, on my bike I have this connected to the 916 coolant resevoir by some 4mm i/d hose. due to this being quite a thin hose it eventually gets a hole in it just above the clamp i use to hold it on the stub. It did it again yesterday, this will be the third time i've replaced it since doing the swap.
- For: Coolant
- Temp: 250-299 (then click "show" so you can also select 300-399)
- Connection Style: Barbed
- ID: 1/4" (I believe you need to repeat the search to see 6mm options as it forces Inch)
