I had a similar issue with my Triumph T509 where the vacuum feeds to the throttle bodies were going brittle, splitting and creating air-leaks.

I replaced with silicon tubing of the correct internal diameter, there is loads of the stuff on ebay in various colours and sizes.

Hi there, I use cooling system hose of adequate diameter.
Hope this helps.
