What are Eazi-Grip motorcycle Silicone Hoses?

Silicone coolant hoses are used to replace your standard rubber coolant hoses. They are stronger, more reliable, can cope with higher temperatures and look better than rubber hoses too.

What temperatures can Silicone Hoses operate at?

Silicone hoses have a much greater temperature resistance compared to rubber hoses. They will perform much better in conditions of temperature extreme and are suitable for use across a temperature range of -50 to +180 Degrees Celsius.

Flexibility

Rubber hoses become hard and brittle over time and are prone to splitting. Our Motorcycle Silicone Hose Kits are more flexible and stronger and they retain this flexibility over their life cycle.

Do Silicone Hoses last longer than standard rubber hoses?

Rubber hoses age faster with heat, whereas Silicone Hoses have a greater life expectancy due to their heat resilience. Rubber hoses become stiff, and crack failing at their job, while Silicone Hoses remain in excellent working order for years.

Are Motorcycle Silicone Hoses easy to work with?

Silicone hoses are mush easier to work with than rubber hoses. Simple installation jobs can be completed quickly and easily with silicone hoses. Rubber hose can be very difficult to remove as it has a tendency to bond with fittings over time. Silicone will not ‘stick’ to your radiator in the same way that rubber will.

Are Silicone Hoses more resistant to chemicals?

Silicone hoses demonstrate an increased resistance to chemicals such as coolant. Compared to rubber, silicone hose structure displays greater physical integrity when it comes into contact with common garage chemicals such as coolant.

Noise and vibration

Silicone has an inherent physical property that allows it to absorb vibration and dampen noise above and beyond that of rubber. The point at which rubber is mated to another surface is well known for causing unwanted noises and vibration. Silicone Hoses are better than rubber for a smoother, quieter engine experience.

Weather resistance

Silicone demonstrates better weather resistance than that of rubber. This is an important choice if you are living in a climate with challenging environmental conditions such as rain and humidity. Silicone will stand up better to the tests of time when the weather is a factor to be considered – strong durability to weather conditions is one of the key benefits of Motorcycle Silicone Radiator Hoses.

Aesthetics

Silicone looks a whole lot better than rubber. It has a visually pleasing gleaming finish and is readily available in a range of colours. Of the many Silicone Intake Hose Benefits, looking great is another. If you want to jazz up the look of your motorcycle, switch to silicone.
