New radiator hoses

I don't know what other brand hoses are out there but I fitted samco hoses. I can say they run around 10 degrees cooler than stock while running at highway speed, once at the lights the temperature rises to match stock temperatures. A friend rides an sv as well with stock hoses and was interesting to see the differance it makes.

That's odd, I wouldn't have expected any significant difference. Are you running the same antifreeze to water ratio as before?

Yeah everything's the same on my bike coolant wise, they are thinner and lighter hoses than stock, once running its cooler than before.

Another thing, I ceramic coated the headers and mid pipe of the yoshi 3/4. They really run much cooler, they cool to touch in a short time. The stock get so hot they burn skin, as my friend did on his leg moving his bike around, I wonder if that helps in engine temp as well?.

So, the rear header, how much cooler do you think it runs (radiating heat) then stock ?
It would be nice to get a temp reading beside the shocker as it puts a lot of heat into the shocker.
I wrapped mine in muffler bandage to help .....

I'll try and get hold of a thermometer gauge and compare to my mates bike. I know the ceramic cools down quickly, be interesting to see how it reads..
