Since my bike is an '02, I decided it was time to replace the hoses.
I decided to use Samco since they were silicone vs rubber and should last much longer.
Got mine from Scotts Motorcycle Service.

The hose kit also comes with really good hose clamps as well.

I wanted red to match the bodywork, but they were back-ordered. Blue they had in stock.
So now I consider blue for water.
