Front mounted rads install help
Just wanted to see if anyone could give me a bit of advise. I'm doing the install on a SP1
Specifically where the one inch rad hose comes out from the thermostat housing to the left of the bike through the frame just above the water pump. I tried using the original piece of 1" hose, the one with the 45 degree bend in it connected to the 60mm connection piece and then connected to the 90 degree Samco hose elbow.
It works ok, but there is a bit of flex in the Samco hose as it goes under the frame.
I thought I should ask if anyone had the same issue, and found a way around it.
The simple answer would be to order a 1" flexible piece from Samco, but the last order took nearly 8 months, no fault to Samco, so I'm hoping someone has another idea.
Also, do I need to provide any thermal protection to the Samco hose as it moves through the frame?
Thanks for any advise!
