Recommended Posts

im looking for some more style in my bike without spending too much. do you think spray painting radiator hoses would work or wear off right away? because buying them is over $100!!!

What bike. Ebay has silicone hoses for less from China. The paint would likely look crappy pretty quick.

i can't find any for my 98 KX250. but there's a company in my city that makes them to order so i might try them, gives me infinate colour options then, depending on price. but i've wondered about plasti-dip? i probably wouldn't use plasti-dip on my coolant hoses but thought about it for my carb boot. might look pretty trick.

i've never used it but people are using it for lots of automotive apps and it just peels off if you dont like it. sounds like a better idea than straight up painting your hoses. like i said it might work ok for a carb boot but i don't know of anything else i'd use it for on a dirtbike. do some searches on youtube to see what people are doing with it. think it's only been around since '09 but i don't know alot about it.

I bought blue heater hoses from siliconehose.com last year for my wr250 and they were about $20. All you need to do is measure your hose diameter and lengths. They are cheap and work just fine.
