I was in the bike shop today and asked if they stocked any coolant pipes/hoses. The guy said they'd have to order one in, specific for my bike, because they are heat-tested and bent etc for the model. They were also very expensive (didn't ask how much).
It's true I can't find similar hoses in the garden section of a hardware store, but surely it's not too hard to find what looks to me like thick, rubbery hose about half a centimetre in diameter. Or am I completely off track? Is there an easy workaround here? The salesman made out like any pipe not shipped over from the hallowed halls of Kawasaki would melt and spurt everywhere as soon as warm coolant hit it.
