Samco hose kit

Has anyone installed the Samco hose kit? I am curious how much of a difference there is in cooling temps.

Thanks,

Ricky Bobby

I could be wrong, but the Samcos are mainly for durability? After installing mine I seem to remember the temps going down a degree or two, but it's more for piece of mind, don't have to worrying about the OEM hoses failing.

That is what I thought, just checking. I have been pricing them out online, just trying to get my bike ready for Indy in hopes that Colin signs my 02 Replica WSBK RC.

I installed the Samco hose kit on mine since the original hoses were getting on in age.
I had no leaks or hose issues, just being a bit proactive while it was apart.
It's still apart so I have no data on temperature difference.

I've used Samco hoses on several different bikes and I've never seen one iota of evidence that different hoses amount to any degree of cooling changes.

That would be awesome, gotta show pics if he goes with it.

In the latest Sport Rider interview he names the 2002 RC51 as his favorite bike of all time.

You mean the bike he was riding the last time he was relevant in the sport?

don't mind LDH - he's old and bitter.

Actually LDH, who do you like? I seem to remember a thread on zilla where you bashed most of the AMA field. Are there any WSBK or GP riders that you favor?

I like riders that make efforts to run up front and be competitive rather than stick around way past their sell-by dates, riding mid-pack, hogging up valuable factory ride seats that could be used to acclimate up & coming hungry new riders into a new crop of stars.

I like riders that will stop at nothing to be competitive and remain relevant in the racing community. Riders like Max Biaggi, Checa, Stoner, Melandri, Spies and many others who give everything they have every time they go out there trying to make it happen for themselves and their fans.
