I once did a roadside coolant hose replacement on an ST1100, the hoses that failed were in the valley between the cylinder heads, under the carburetors. There wasn't a Honda dealer anywhere nearby (and even if there had been, it was Sunday), so I got a ride to Autozone where I matched bends and diameters with stuff off the shelf and hacked out the bits I needed, IIRC the whole job cost <$50. Those hoses went a couple more years before the bike was wrecked in a crash.

At least it was a nice day...

How are those ASI hoses going? My KTM is 10 this year & I've been thinking of putting on a new set of hoses, or just keeping them in stock. Given the original hoses still look good after a bunch of miles I'm thinking of going with those again, but those orange ones do look purty & silicone is supposed to be superior...
