    RXP replacement intake hoses

    What is everyone replacing their front plastic air hoses with when they crack?

    Small pool vacuume hose? I see some stainless hoses out there?
    thanks,

    I bought new ones from the dealer. They come black now. Had them 2 years. No problems.

    do they really move air thru them?
    or are they just cosmetic?
    I could not find a air entry hole up front?

    I used a spare shop vac hose that I had laying around. i guess it'll do and doesn't look bad neither. I would think that the stainless steel hoses would add some weight to the hood when you need to open it while riding.

    I was thinking of the pool hose/vacume hose idea my self, I was also thinking of making some holes under the front silver scoops in front so air realy came thru, but the IJSBA rules say you can't make any holes in the front bigger, that is why I like the rear air so much, but when I go in with the EX SC in the stock locaton, by by rear air, hello heat soak,

    Mcmastercarr carries the hose cover that will fit on top of your oem hoses like 8 dollars a foot, they are the nice stainless steel, check out my posts on this thread http://www.greenhulk.net/forums/showthread.php?t=164166
