Leaky hoses

1051 Views 5 Replies 4 Participants Last post by  Ksucio
Does anyone have any recommendations for new (better!) coolant hoses for a 2005 999? Seems a lot of people have leaky ones that have been adjusted, but still manage to leak again when the bike is cold. Thanks.

Thanks for the links. They look better than stock, as well.

I'm not sure what you meant by 'adjusted' but on my bikes, the hoses needed to be 'repositioned' (without removing) and then the clamps were well tightened - this fixes the problem (at least for now). Just tightening the clamps is only a temporary fix. Have you repositioned the hoses on your bike and they are still leaking?

They were repositioned, then retightened - However, they still manage to leak a bit - but only when the bike is cold.
Mechanic at dealership insists that the next time he will apply a sealant and allow it to cure for a few hours.
