Water Hoses

Can you just use automobile heater hose instead of the $100 shit?

I don't see why heater hose won't work.

Regular automotive radiator water hoses are fine, except for the bends unique to each model of car or motorcycle. If you can make it work without any kinks that would hurt the flow, it's all golden!!!

In my case I prefer to save the hassle and experiments. I used samco silicone hoses and the clamps that came with the kit.

Sure, hose is hose.

Don't bother with those expensive hose clamps either, you can just wire them on.

Why use wire to keep the hoses on, when you could use zip ties or super glue.

Logic dictates

Silicone hoses. Shouldn't you use silicone sealer? Super glue would restrict maintenance removal and make the clamps all sticky.......
