I'd much rather try using a stainless line. something like this. Saw it on the 599 forum



Spectre Performance

Stainless Steel Braided Sleeving | Stainless Steel Cable Sleeving | Wire Sleeving | CableTiesAndMore.com

The only thing is the bend in the line

Many MX bikes are running those silicone hoses now - never seen them for street bikes before.

+1 on the braided stainless.

Blue hoses...yes I might call that bling. They DO make them in black. They are superior hoses to stock. that $230 price is for seven hoses and I have to wonder what all seven hoses from Honda would cost?

There are bold motorcyclists and old motorcyclists, but (OK) there are few old bold motorcyclists

As for price comparison...I did a quick search and all 7 genuine Honda hoses online cost $96.05 less shipping, less than I thought. Some Honda parts I have bought in the past were rediculous in price, like $3 for a small o-ring!

Using them for a year, nothing special except from the touch, they are harder than OEM ones.

I honestly don't think you need them for street use. On the trail with tons of rocks and branches....ok I see the function. But on the street? honda oem hoes are plenty good and look fine. Much better then blue. IMO

Ok understand the dislike for Yamaha blue, but what about Suzuki blue?

Not a big fan of dumping crap into my bike, more of a torco fan myself....

Bike Runs Cooler Immediately on Installation

Really ????????

If one had to choose between the hose set and a PC3usb, gosh, what a difficult decision to make !
