How often should the hoses be replaced?
I have about 32k miles on my '01, and I have a bit of a coolant weep where the upper radiator hose connects to the radiator. I tightened the clamp up last year, and I thought it was good, until I took the fairings off and saw there was some more weeping and the level was a bit low in the recovery tank. I tried to tighten it up, but it just wont go any tighter.....so I'm guessing I need to buy a new hose.
Looking on Bike Bandit....These hoses aren't exactly cheap, and I should probably change all of them while I'm doing it.....no sense in replacing one now to have another one fail in a year or so.
Just wondering for those with older Sprints......have you had to replace your coolant hoses?
I will be flushing the coolant too.....and I need to flush the brake fluid too, but that's another topic.
