Hey guys how often do you replace the radiator hoses. My 1500(1993) has around

64,000 miles on it , and I noticed a couple of drops of anitfreeze by the clamps. I figure the hoses must be getting hard and brittle. I'm afraid if I tighten them I'll mess up the radiator's.:?

Just changed my belts and coolant at 70,000 and mine are in good shape. You may want to warm the bike up and then snug the clamps a bit.

Trust me,,,,, if they didn't look good to me, I wouldn't hesitate to change them.

Thanks guys: I'll try to squeeze the hoses and see how they feel and try to tighten.
