View Full Version : two hose sizes

just hoping im on the right lines, im mounting a cbr 600 in my atv, question is, civic radiator hose connectors are much bigger than the engines, does this cause problems, or is it best to reduce the hose to same size as engines, or the other way, bigger hose same as rad, i was going to go big hoses, and mount temp switch in the reducer, any advise would be great.

What I did on my radiator was cut the bungs, machine ones that would fit 1" hose (CBR 1000) and weld in the new ones where I needed them.

I would put reducers close to the radiator.

Yes...I got my reducers from RickS. He even has ones that can have a hole tapped for a temp sensor, etc...
