hey there,
does anyone have a solution to protect the metal tube that come out from the top of the water pump impeller? i am worried about a rock being shot at me while riding (California desert). My skid plate covers the water pump body but not this tube that comes out... so my questions are can i wrap something around it? like some silicon hosing? or heat wrapping or ????... any suggestions would be much appreciated! thanks guys! im guessing you can't replace it with silicone units, but not sure...

Just wrap it with a peice of hose os some sort..If you wont to be cheap get some garden hose, paint it black and chuck it on.Otherwise just buy a hose big enough to go over it then leave the rest of the hoses normal.
