I bought the hoses because I was having a problem with the radiator being pushed forward by the expansion of the stock hoses so I hoped it would help. It was very pricey but I figured they would last the life of the motorcycle. When I received them everything looked OK, I did notice the crossover "S" hose that passes between the cylinders was about 7 or 8 mm shorter but I thought it would be OK. I removed all the original hoses and started systematically replacing them and everything was going well until that crossover hose. I could NOT get it on the barbs on both sides at the same time and access is limited. Four hours later with both hands bleeding, I finally cut the two short hoses that share pipes with it as short as I could and still it wasn't enough. In the process I put two small nicks in the outer layer of the hose(I know, I know, don't use pliers but I was desperate) so I gave up and put the stock one back on. Now I have a cut up hose set and scabs on my hands. I will gladly return the S hose if you can supply me with a longer one and replacements for the short ones I cut off. I'll even wash the blood off it. Also, I received 4 very small clamps for the over flow bottle tubes, 2 sm/med (25?) 8 med(30?), 4 large clamps. All the middle hoses are the same diameter and the sm/med are big enough and the med are too big to compress the hose perfectly so I don't understand why I only got 2 out of ten of the perfect clamps and 8 that are biggish.(They worked but have a very long "tail") The large and small were fine and I wouldn't have said anything except for the other big problem. I paid more to get this from KTM TWINS as I trust you guys and am generally loyal to people who go the extra mile in service. By the way, I'm a VERY competent mechanic and the folks at Scuderia know me. Please let me know how to proceed with the hose issue.
Thanks for reading this, Matt
