Radiator hose trouble
What's up dudes!
So I need to replace the inlet hose on the left side of the bike as it was leaking. Question though, when I need to reinstall the new hose, do you guys have any recommendations on installing the new hose? It was a bi*** getting the old hose off and I am looking for a solution to put the new one on. Some people have told me to use dish soap on the inside of the hose to help it slide on easier, and others have said to use hand sanitizer. The last thing that I want to have happen is to break off the radiator bib from trying to muscle it on there.. but I also don't want to have those slip off once riding either due to the application of some sort of lubricant. I also obviously don't want to put on something that will cause the rubber to corrode. What do you guys recommend??
If you wait until the last minute to do something, it will only take a minute.
