Yep, done it as have others. Look up the samco website, find your nearest distributor and give them a call. Takes a few weeks

If your still after the kit. I know someone in the industry who may be able to get a cheaper price. Give me a couple of days and I will come back with the price.

I had a full kit of my TVR for 55 normal price 160.

Question Samco Hoses - Why?

What makes these silicon hoses any better than standard ones?
And do they all come in that crappy blue colour?

Hi, they have a higher burst pressure,they don't perish, they come in almost any colour you like.In short they should out last the bike.I fitted them to my 851 reasoning that sod's law 15+ year old hoses will always let go at the furthest and most inconvient place from home!

Hi MB

Would you be able to get a set of hoses for an SP3? Samco's web site seems to suggest they're not availabe.

Thanks

Andrew

Someone from the US sent them the octopus hose several months ago, but no sign of a copy from Samco yet.

I think I've got a spare "octopus" hose (it's labelled ARTICOLO 080010201A SLEEVE), in a Ducati bag which suggests it was sent to JHP originally. Would Samco be interested in making copies? And would they do some sort of "deal" to the club in acknowledgement???
