Lower 919 Radiator Hose

What are you guys using for the lower radiator hose? I need to replace my top due to a small leak and thought to just do all of them while I am at it. Plus replace the coolant since it's been 2-3 years. Anyways, I looked on Partzilla and the lower hose is obsolete. Went to my dealer to order the top 2 hoses (he price matches Partzilla and I save on shipping) and he confirmed that it's obsolete as well. None of the dealers on the same inventory system have it in stock. The part number is 19503-MER-D00. All the places I looked via the Google don't seem to have it either. Suggestions?

Just play. Have fun. Enjoy the game.

Got these silicone hoses of ebay. www.as3performance.co.uk
Been on bike for 6 months, no worries. When I fitted them I felt one was a little short, I got in contact, explained the problem and they sent a new hose no cost to me. Real nice bloke, Ben. Turns out they sent the wrong one. It took a while and I ended getting a china ebay fella to make up a hose for about $20. It was silicon and identical to the UK hoses. The photo shows the stock lower radiator hose and the as3 silicon one. That hose is the one they sent as a single unit, the one I think you are after. They are shiny, hard and come in pretty colours.

Good looking out. I am hesitant to buy aftermarket but may just bite the bullet.

Just play. Have fun. Enjoy the game.

Here is a comparison shot between the as3 silicone hose and the stock rubber. The stock is softer and has a single ply. The silicone is harder and multi ply. I also used wider hose clamps than the stock, Norma I think. The stock hose clamps cut in too much, also started to "chew" out the thread on the band. I used clamps with rolled edges as I noticed the silicone "cut" easier than the rubber. I didn't care much for their logo stamped on each hose, kinda looks like asS. The china ebay had no logo.
Both as3 and the China guy were happy to send out single hoses. Why not get all OEM hoses and order a silicone hose to replace obsolete hose. You'll hardly see it under the wire protector. Six months on my bike, no problems. Gravel roads, fuel, oil, hot engine, no worries.
I've also seen that lower radiator hose in stainless, although it didn't have those nice bends. Cheers

Yeah. I looked at them but noticed something. This kit is missing the short, smaller diameter hose that goes near the oil filter. I did get this fella to make up a hose that I wanted. I pointed out which one I wanted and they sent it out, in black and slightly longer. Super cheap. Quality was good too.

This the china ebay silicone hose besides it's OEM twin. Front of engine block to water pump. I got em to make it a little longer to stop it rubbing on the bottom of the engine.
