Had a problem with the rubber part between the radiator and recovery tank last summer. They replaced it with a used one, only one they had. Said i need to replace it with a new one and should also replace the radiator hoses. How many are there and where is the best place to order them?

The radiator has two main hose. They are not cheap. I picked up spares off of ebay.

There is also a heat riser under the carb, and thermostat hoses, and o-rings on the metal tubes.

Here is a link that illustrates the cooling system parts. On the pull down menu, look at the 1) Engine: Radiator and 2) Engine: Thermostat 3) Engine: Waterpump.. That "recovery tank is listed under 4) Frame: Reserve Tank.
