Hi guys,
I am in the process of fitting Samco Silicone Hoses to my 2007 RSVR. Unfortunately, family differences mean that my mechanic Brother in law is now not standing over my shoulder as he was when I took the hoses off. I am at the point that I need to reconnect the hoses under the throttle bodies (removed) that enter the coolant manifold. This is extremely fiddly, and I'm wondering if there is a set order that I need to be reconnecting the hoses on the left hand side of the bike, without dropping the engine. Any tips would be appreciated.

PS They do look the dogs bollocks.

Situations like this is why I always take lots of digicam pics when taking things apart. Helps tremendously when trying to put them back together.

I did take pics, so I know where they all go, it's just the three hoses going into the manifold are extremely tight. I think it's just gonna take patience and busted knuckles!:bangwall:

Just a liitle bit of routing for these.

These were the real bastards. Had to remove airbox and throttle bodies. Busted knuckles and patience. Had to connect to cylinder block first then the manifold. There is then a larger hose that runs from the bottom of the manifold to L/H/S Radiator. Very tricky to get the clip onto.

Do any of the hoses need to be cut? these are all just for the coolant system right? not oil also?
