    K bike coolant hoses

    Hello everybody. I'm new to this forum and have a question regarding the coolant hoses on my 1986 K75T. Is there a maintenance schedule for changing these hoses? Thanks in advance for any input/advice you offer.

    Not too hard a call if you've never done it - you're looking at 18 year old hoses. Might be time to do them - just so you feel easy about them when riding some distance.

    As far as a schedule - I've never heard of any. Probably because use and time and enviroment all have an effect on the hoses.

    Lots easier to do at home than on the road..

    BTW - what's "T" stand for?

    Oohh, I know the answer to that one. When the Ks were first introduced, there was a variant with higher bars and a big ol' fork mounted windshield. They were the "T" series.

    Some bikes. Some with motors, some without.

    Isn't Paul Glave's bike originally a K75T? (before he transformed it into the thing we know and love today) They were made in '86 and '87 if my memory is working...
