Thanks everyone, JP KILLED it, looks great so much room with the pod still intact. once i get coolant in it and change out a couple temp fittings and get some paint on the pipes ill snap a few pics with the inner fenders re-installed to show the finished product.. again props to Rubber Down Customs for making a killer rad kit. SUPER impressed... but in your next kit add a few straight barb connections...i had to buy 2 to finish the job and the factory pipe flipped is PERFECT as JP pointed out.

Awesome write up. We did however improve our rad kit, we lowered the profile a bit, and the rack mounting bolts closest to the pod are now using the factory mounting holes in the rack (like the forward mounting holes), so its not a pain in the ***** to get those bolts in place anymore LOL.

NOW you modify it :-) lol did you check on the rad 1" to 1" 90 degree fittings? it fits so much better with straight ones used.. just our opinion ( Plus the factory hose worked so well

amazing kit tho guys so happy with the quality of the rad kit.

I thought it was simple enough as it was, lol. I pulled the rack & "hood" piece to pull the rad, so I simply bolted the rad into your bracket & then your backet onto the rack while it was still off the bike & everything was out in the open.

Very nice piece for sure. As Blknite23 noted, we used one of the 90* couplers you included & sourced two straight hose couplers for very clean fitment. Flipping the lower hose around and putting it on the rad & extending the line down by the T-housing really made it fit nicely.


The rad on those 1k's is a freakin parasail, only so much you can do with it fitment/looks wise - LOL.

Seen many many snorkles done using that marine hose and never seen/heard of any problems caused due to the flex hose...

Maybe I am mistaken, on the type of hose being used here. The pipe that I have seen around here that is ribbed like that, is a glorified vacuum hose. And IMO as soon as it makes a curve drastically cuts down airflow.

I personally prefer hose that has a smooth inside, better airflow.

???? - if that was directed towards me/this thread you need to actually look at the info posted on that hose before you respond. - It has a helical wire & will handle full vaccum w/o any ID change, as this is exactly what it's designed for.


I've sold hose/fittings for a living for 10+ years, this is what I do.

Good to know.

Did you not read my last post were I stated I may have mistaken the type of hose used?

I on the other hand have not sold fittings for the last 10 years so I am certain you know more then me on the subject.

I have seen similar hose used and I didn't like the quality. So I don't use it.

If I offended you then don't post things on a public forum where you may encounter criticism.

No offense taken, and no I didn't realize the thread had split to a second page. Sorry if I came off defensive, I've gotten a lot of comments before because people automatically assume it's just "spa hose" or "vacuum cleaner hose" and post w/o reading the info provided.


It is somewhat what you could call a "glorified vacuum hose", as it is simply an industrial flex ducting hose. - I have at least 20 bikes running this hose, a couple of which have been done for almost 10 years now w/o any problems, very few other snorkel jobs can claim that on machines that get used most every weekend. Plus, it's super easy to work around since you can simply unhook one end & flex it back out of the way.



I have never & will never run an all hard-pipe snorkel. Too much of a pita to do, even more of a pita to work around, and far more prone to fatigue/crack/failure over time due to not allowing for flex. Also more likely to mess up plastics over time, again due to lack of flex.

Hey JP,

Thanks for the additional info. I agree it would be nice when servicing your machine. I use flex PVC for the same reason. It has a little give to it if you jar something. I guess time will tell how it holds up to the elements.

Happy snorkelling
