    . Looking through the old postings on Coolant issues, I can't find where owners are getting the hoses. It sounds like I'm way past due on changing hoses. 10 year old RT3 with 50,000 miles. Ant ideas on suppliers?
    Thanks.

    Chip, try googling the Samco hose kit. They do them for the Rocket and are very well respected by R3 owners on here. Cost is just under a hundred quid over here. No doubt the kit will be cheaper in the USA as always!!

    Thanks for the ideas. I will contact Motovicity in the morning. I'll follow up with other suppliers from the web.

    All kinds of threads on here about hoses -- don't know how you could miss it if you looked.

    Most of them lead to SAMCO, and most folks recently have ordered them from the UK eBay site, and most order the kit including their hose clamps. As a plus, the hoses are available in several colors -- I ordered red to accent the red parts of my bike.

    Not a clue how I missed this boat. After I posted, I saw the similar postings at the bottom of the page. Thanks everyone for helping a guy with a brain spasm. Can't see how I missed them.
