Oil Cooler Hoses

Oil Cooler Hoses

Well I was going to stay with the Rag Line Black oil cooler hoses but The Travesty will be black and stainless steel jacketed lines just looked cool. I found a shop that made a set up for me yesterday and I picked them up today.

$80.00 for the set.

Those crimped ends look factory, nice. The ones I made have a rad clamp with a faux AN slip on cover, your's look much cleaner.

Looking good Mike - now cross your fingers that all the ends are oriented correctly! That had been the only problem with aftermarket crimped hoses - getting the final product to bolt up in correct alignment. Once you cut the ends off, you have no reference, unless you keep a spare stock set for a pattern. A good outfit should have known all that and taken care to get it right. Can't wait to see the finished look of those on the bike!

Hey Dave,

The guys at the hose shop did a great job of matching the angles. I put a set on my Red 79 and they bolted up well. I have a set for The Travesty as well.

I did have to lower the engine to manipulate the hoses into place. The stainless steel wrap is not as flexible as the rag line.

Excellent! A very nice upgrade for not a lot of money.
