    Id recommend you use Kanaflex. Some other material might not hold up well in the temp and conditions you ride in. 6-7 feet is good length.

    Unfortunately I cant find Kanaflex which everyone mentions but found: Allstar ALL42154 Black 4" x 10' Brake Duct Hose Rated at 300 degrees F

    Would that be ok?

    Call Riva They sell it by the foot. Where are you located? I personally have never used what you have posted. So Im not going to say yes it will be fine.

    Find a local hose supplier and tell them you need kanaflex. If they don't have it they will have another brand that does the same thing. If they are knowledgeable which most of them are, they will know what kanaflex is. The main thing is you want temp rated with a wire reinforcement in it so it won't collapse under the suction of the supercharger. The hose supplier I used for mine deals mostly in hydraulic hoses and and had boxes of kanaflex style hose in a room in their warehouse.

    I looked at what you found and it looks like it will collapse from the suction of the supercharger. DONT use it. Some others have used other hose beside Kana but I am not sure what it is called.
