Samco silicone hoses installed and slightly kinked?

I installed a set of Samco SUZ-33 hoses with Samco clamps and got a slight kink in the hose from thermostat to front cylinder hose.

I had to shorten both thermostat hoses to each cylinder since the hoses were not pre-bent enough for the location and were impossible to fit without kinking. Now after trimming the rear cylinder is fine but the front has a slight bend to it, though not enough to substantially limit flow. Considering ordering oem rubber hoses for these 2 short hoses and keeping the rest silicone.

Is this normal or an issue?

Totally normal to have to trim a tiny bit in my experience with the SV650 and SV1000 hose kits.

That little bend will be fine....

When you installed the hose, did the "long" side of the hose (outer bend) try to pull itself back of the thermostat or the other end ? If so, that woul indicate that it is too short, if not, then, start the bike, get it up to temp and go for a ride, and all will be well grasshopper....

I might no' be a smart man Jenny....but i can pain' ma copper colored bike a dif'ren color.....

Bike seems fine after a day of riding. And hose has not changed, maybe slightly less bent now (according to a look through the frame with my helmet on at a traffic light). Issue is the hose is not pre-bent enough for this space. I'll inspect again this morning but am comfortable using them. Went on pretty easy and got the thermostat out between the throttle bodies and frame (so I didn't have to remove the throttle bodies).

You did fine. Itíll be fine. Sometime silicone hoses weep a bit, but heat cycles usually clear that up.
