    Question Gates hose to replace the OEM hose

    I did the 'search' here at the forum on gates hose and am not sure which type of hose I will need to get for replacing the OEM hose-they have so many to chose from-I guessing the green striped?

    Sorry-forgot to mention it is the hose that surrounds the prop shaft.

    Most Autoparts stores carry them. cut to length. Bought by the foot. 6" is what I cut mine to.

    just had prop shaft out and did not replace this hose...
    is it a common fault that will fail often....
    guessing if it does fail, sinking look like its on the cards...
    worth pulling and doing now or waiting for prop change....

    Hey Salty,
    I have had my ski now for 8 hears with out issue. Other members have had theres collapse in 40 hrs. A friend of mine was kind enough to give me the rest of his stock after he had gotten done with his 2 skis. Its basicaly a gamble some fail and others dont. It is easy enough to install so I guess it would be worth the isurance policy vs sitting in the bay watching your ski sink. I am going to be doing mine as soon as it comes out of storage.

    Lowes sells clear high-pressure hose of that size.... you have to put it in HOT water to get it softened up enough to install.
