How long(yrs or miles) do KLR coolant hoses last?
Providing the bike hasnít ever been overheated, how long do these hoses last ? Letís say I bought a 2002 w/ 10 k miles. The hoses are 18 yrs old. If they are still plyable, could ( or would ) you use these over ? Iím not a tight wad, and maybe a dumb question, but Iíve seen many older auto coolant hoses 20 yrs old still look good inside and out. Not spongy or hard. Your take on this issue. If /when I tear down a Gen 1 KLR for oil psi, oil flow mods, Do-Hicky , oil screen clean, Thermo Bob, since every thing is apart any way- I would be inclined to replace all coolant hoses yes/no ? Also to those that have, what is approx cost of all hoses. Thank for your replies.
