question about siphon hose for 2002 cbr 954
Hello, just bought a 2002 cbr 954 2 months ago (my first bike ever)
on my last ride a few days ago smoke started to come just under the fuel tank.
when i parked my bike, i noticed a lot of cooling water coming out from the bottom. during later inspection i noticed that the siphon hose was broken.
my questio is if i can use any rubber hose with proper diameter and length to replace the siphon hose or does it have to be a special hose just for the cbr 954? when i say any hose, i dont mean a rubber garden hose but a coolant hose for vehicels which are heat protected, but not specifically for honda cbr 954.
also another question. i was wondering if my radiator is now empty because of broken siphon hose, because when i looed at the technical diagram, this hose is a connectio between the radiator and the reserve tank, but it doesnt take part in the circulation of the cooling water under normal conditions. And since the connection to the radiator is just under the cap, i was wondering if the broken hose is the reason for leaking coolant and empty radiator or could there be something else?
