Radiator Overflow Line

Hi Guys,

 

I have to replace my overflow tank lines.  I went to the dealer, who sent me to Ace HW, who sent me to Autozone, who sent me to NAPA...

 

What kind of tubing/line is good for this application?  The NAPA guy sent me home w/ Tygon fuel line, I think because I said "dirt bike" and I didn't want heavy duty black auto radiator hose....

 

Any advice is kindly appreciated.

 

Thanks,

 

Joe

Oh, forgot to mention that I am concerned the 165F max temp of the Tygon line isn't high enough and is the wrong line for this application.  What is the correct material to use?

I would order the OEM hose, to ease any uncertainty about being right or not, also for fit and finish so it doesn't look haggard. Looks like it is about $10 just looking online real fast.

Clear standard fuel line is fine.

You are over thinking this.

The factory one lasts.

I'm wondering what material factory OEM is.  The dealer didn't have any, and I don't think they could find a part number for it.

 

Anyone have a part number and cost of the OEM hose?

 

I'm not interested much in opinions as much as facts.

This is for a '12 WR450, not sure what model year you have.

 

Yamaha part # 1DX-1244H-00-00

Price $9.49 from Rocky Mountain

Any dealer worth anything should have taken less than 2 minutes to get this part #.

Thanks I will order the OEM part.  I think the dealer thought he was doing me a favor since he didn't have anything in stock and thought the Ace HW vinyl tubing would work.  I was there Saturday at about 4:45pm...  I think he pulled up the radiator microfiche and it wasn't on there....  It's an 05 model.
