Damn, you can pretty much build an entire bike with just eBay replica stuff.

as Str8 Lurkin said for colour, some may say there stronger but in my opinion you cant go past oem, my bike still has its original oem hoses that are probibly over 9yo now but are still in great condition, i just wanted a different colour without paying the $$$ as its a budget build

Why would anyone replace a perfectly good Japanese hoses with some POS ripoff crap from China???? Mods are supposed to be improvements, not degradations. If you are going to go through the trouble of replacing your hoses, then get a name brand like Samco.

Because they are inexpensive so why not give them a try. If you have the extra $50-60 to test them out why not?

Check out the eBay rotor thread, one person gave them a shot and is completely happy with them, even took them to the track.

I personally don't see the point of replacing a perfectly good functioning and highly critical quality part made in Japan or US for a POS shameless ripoff made in China just because it replicates (in outward appearance only) a more expensive top quality brand.

To me it would be akin to throwing out a perfectly functioning and in great condition quality Seiko watch in the garbage and replacing it with a POS fake Rolex ripoff from China. The only differece is, when the POS Chinese watch imminently fails, you may miss a class or an appointment. When the POS Chinese hose imminently splits at the seam, you will probably be looking at a far more catastrophic result.

The cost of "testing" may be $50 - $60 but when the critical part fails, the cost of failure will be exponentially greater.

did you not see yimmys post saying that his bottom hose is leaking? thats kind of the point of this thread... and thats why the other guy is trying them out. if they work out good then other people will know they can trust this brand from china, not everyone is buying these hoses only to mod their bike.

Sorry yimmy, I didn't see that; and thanks Bloody for pointing it out. Yeah if you actually need to replace the hose, then it's a little bit different story. Even then, I would not go with anything Chinese on critical parts, but that's just me.

so i have some bad news and some good news, bad is i binned my bike at the track due to a lowside :( good news is the ebay hoses have held up great so far, the bike went out for a few sessions at the track and i let the bike run through a few cycles of the cooling system at home, so far no leaks, swelling or problems at all :) but i will give it a few more months of running to see how they really hold up.

i would like to add not every hose comes with the ebay set, one hose that goes to the oil cooler and the really small hoses like radiator overflow and bypass are not included

Sorry to hear about the crash, hope the damage isn't too bad and it's a quick fix.

So to understand when you first installed the hoses there was a bit of swelling but after a few cycles it went away?

Did you receive an extra long narrow hose that you can't seem to find a home for? I think the Samco kits come with a hose like that which you're supposed to trim for overflow tubing.

crash damage is bad to a degree but fixable and i walked out uninjured :)

as for swelling it was my old hosed that had swelled up, i have had no swelling at all on the ebay hoses so far during or after fitting them.

no extra long narow hoses were supplied, i got the main large hoses, a hose that goes from the oil cooler to the upper radiator hose "Y" joiner, and one from the water pump to under the fuel tank somewhere and that was all i recieved

left side, the hose that is between the frame and top left of the stator cover is the one of the hoses i didnt get with the set, would have been nice if it did come with the set as its one of the hoses you can see


right side, the overflow hose at the top does not come with the set but im sure you can buy some cheap silicome hose somewhere to make it match


after i got home from the track, it was a full fairinged street bike with repsol fairings


AND what im left to work with :( all i can say is woodcraft frame sliders are well worth the money :)

We are working on a ducati at work with some real samco hoses in blue. I cannot see what is so special about them, both are reinforced with nylon and the silicone on the real samco isn't anything special. What you're buying is the color, and personally, I wouldn't care which one I had if I was looking to purchase some. Looking at those pictures they look and appear to be no different at all. I bet they'd last just as long too.
