i should think so, there's a coupler just below the tank on my Gen 1.
If your going to the MCN Peterborough show this weekend there's normally a stall that does all different hoses

Hey thats weird I just took my tank off and noticed mine were both missing!  So I'm in the same boat. Sadly everything with my bike seems to have been botched or skimped on by the previous owners.

I researched it and the internal diameter is 5mm (I hope) so I've ordered some eBay silicone hose.

Without hijacking the thread does anyone know the routing of these hoses?  As in where they should come out at the bottom of the bike.  The parts fiche is next to useless..

Pretty much the same with my bike but I'm getting there, lucky enough I've ordered some 5mm ID silicone hose from ebay hopefully it will sta d up to the heat ok, the pipes run down the right side of the bike and there is actually a cut out in the belly pan where they should poke through if your still unsure when I replace mine I'll get some pictures

I don't think those drain hoses run too close to the pipes so silicone would probably be an improvement on oe

Got silicone pipes on mine.

It's routed slightly differently to normal near the exhaust, as I have a non standard belly pan.

Silicone will be better with any heat than rubber:

" Silicone is more resistant to heat, chemical attacks, fungus attacks, UV and Ozone attacks than normal rubber.

• Silicone is much better than all other rubbers for thermal insulation due to its heat resistance.

• Silicone rubber offers special properties, which organic rubbers do not posses. Organic rubbers have poor tensile and tear properties at high temperatures while these properties are excellent in silicone rubbers at the same temperature conditions."

Question everything.
