Could someone give me the spec. of the pipe from rad to expansion bottle, mine's about 10mm I/D and 10.1mm O/D powdery/crumbling. So up to the top of the to-do list, Thanks

Hi the.postman

I was also checking this earlier today along with all the other rubber hoses that I need to check / replace on my 1986 K100RT.

The water hose is 880 mm long and part # 17111152866.

Thanks Bill
Any idea what the I/D of the hose is so I can get an aftermarket length of (perhaps silicone )piping

Dom,

Unfortunately, I don't know the I/D of the rad to expansion bottle hose - it's not one that gets mentioned much - perhaps one of our knowledgable forum members may know?

I can recall seeing someone suggest using a 8mm clear plastic tubing for the expansion bottle level tube.

Anyway, my local BMW dealer just over the border in North Essex have quoted a price of £5.70 for the BMW hose - part # 17111152866.

Bill.

Thanks Bill
8mm sounds about right.
I think I can get some clear silicone @ £2.75/metre.
Sounds OK?

Just had a re-think and will go for black because the black silicone is made up of multiply with reinforcement suitable of temps -60 to +180 C @£5.50 for 2m delivered

Always good to have some in the "shed"
