It's been awhile since I've seen this brought up, so I will do so. Has anyone had any experience using the silicone radiator hoses instead of the OEMs that Honda wants a fortune for? They are available from US makers as well as the ever present Chinese manufacturers. I know that some race cars and police vehicles use them, but have no knowledge of them being used on a Goldwing. I am in process of changing the timing belts on my 2000SE, and figured I might as well replace the hoses as well, even though they look in great shape.
