Installed the new hoses today. Still need to buy some new clamps and fill but wanted to see what you guys think.... not the best pick either!

definitely makes it seem alive.. like an alien snake is working it's way through your engine. I agree with the Britten similarity... and it's nice to see a bike that isn't purely slicked out... too many of those copies, this is original. Now, I'm not sure what this tart's handbag option is... is that a luggage option? can't find it on ducati.com

I went for the black set;). Some are easy to replace and the small once under the throttle bodies are a bitch to get to and to be honest, I had to take some of again and redo it since I routed some wrong and missed a hidden one.

It's really a job you want to start slowly and don't rush it, get's a little confusing with so many hoses......

On my long-term project Monster S4, I went for the same blue hoses - sort of a hot-rod look:



Sorry for the size of the pic.

Thanks everybody..... except blackie :D

The job wasn't that hard took about 1.5 hrs. Like Guido said just take your time because the hoses are weird. And some of the routing is tricky.

If your air pockets during re-filling the coolant system, I haven't done that yet. I need to order some black hose clamp to finish the job
