+1 on the new screw hose clamp ... works for me.

Just make sure you check it for tightness occasionally.

So far the screw clamp is holding. It will be good and hot this afternoon on my way home so that will tell the tale if i can trust my work or not.

I'm still baffled how that hose slipped down (almost off) the water pump.

I'd say about 75% of the stuff on the bike besides the engine and frame, they cheaped out on.

Probably right, but in this case I was pleased to see the fittings are all metal not plastic. Really the problem is that the new hose is too short just like the original ... no idea why, I'm sure it's not going to save much money.

I think lots of the parts come from cheap remote parts of the world. I think the chain was from Czech.

Although it's the same with the automotive industry. For some reason people think that a German brand means an all German bike. Not so much.

But with these bikes it's good to replace the broken stuff with the great stuff you would put on anyway.... apart from things like the damn hoses and gaskets!
