Since I have a 15.5 SXF450FE we are making Moto Hose Oversize & Braced Radiators for at least my bike. This model Radiators fits this year only and there were limited of them manufactured by KTM.

Those of you who have a 15.5 SXF450FE is there interest in us making a larger production run?

Moto Hose Radiators are $199.95 per side.

Not sure IF the 15.5 SXF250FE is the same maybe someone with a 250FE can help me identify?

Isn't the difference in the plumbing only? I thought it was 2 lower spouts in the right radiator that was the difference?

I ripped a start from Egypt and I was happy about that.

The 15.5 FE 250 SX-F has the radiators like your 450. It has the 2 to 1 hose on right radiator.

Im a professional welder for a living and also AWS CWI.

They might work, but they are definitely not pretty. No consistency, Cold and hot in the same weld, wondering up and down mid weld etc etc. I'm no internet weld inspector either, I would of said nothing if you didn't say what you said in your post.

I would happily weld one radiator out for you and send it back for you to use in your pictures, haha.

Back to radiators here....I bought some off eBay that have the exact same center brace and they look exactly like those. Are these the same just corner braced?

With that said the ones I got work great.

Fontana Radiator repair will take your accordian and make it new again plus beef up the joins and seems at a fraction of the cost of new or am. They do the motorcylce repairs every Wednesday, iif the shipment arrives before then, the your rads will ship out to you on a Thursday

Go for it! Don't let a little thing like fear, or common sense hold you back.

Those are some beautiful welds there.

Lumpy has taken a few jabs at me in the past but it's all good, I still bought hoses from him.smile All political related I'm sure and we all know how Gibby feels about that!

That said, I can only believe that Lump posted up that pic to chum the waters and draw out some critics. I can't believe the radiator in that pic was any more than a pieced together prototype and in no way a production part. Excellent trolling Lumpy.wink

While some may consider the posts as bait, I find question over the "Made in the USA" claims interesting.

FMF is proud to let customers know that their exhausts are completely manufactured in their California warehouse. I'd think that any company producing their items in America, thus helping create jobs for Americans, would also be willing to share a little more about the process rather than just ignore the question completely and repeatedly.

So are the hoses and radiators physically manufactured from start to finish in the USA or not?

Why doesn't FMF use USA made titanium??? NO doubt they manufacture their pipes in the USA... But they could use USA made titanium and they don't from what I've heard from the sales reps. And its right here in vegas, only a few hours from SO-Cal. Theres only a few titanium sources in the world and i'm pretty sure they stuff they use comes from russia.

i must also openly say, I would love to be proven wrong, and put that rumor to bed.

If FMF does but there Ti from Russia, is it a quality thing, or purely cost? Let's be serious, a lot of things these days have foreign content in them. A Made in USA car is anything but, last I read, a car crosses the Cdn/US border 6 times, before it's even built and shipped. I've hauled auto parts, and components going back and forth to be furthered in assembly and returned to origin, is common.

Still, I'd like to know where the original hose that Lumpy uses is made. Is the entire product made here, or just formed and packaged? I think it's a fair question to ask.

Hmm...interesting to see a few folks who haven't posted in a while show up for this one. pinch

Still some unanswered questions on this, Gibby. Some people want to know the deal on the origin of these hoses, and I thinks it's fair to ask that, since they are touted as Made in USA.

Answering questions is one thing...and I didn't delete all of them.

But stalking is over the top.

Fair enough, but here's my deal. As a consumer, regardless of why I'm buying, I want to know where my money is going. A company here in North America, or China.

Case in point: I had to by tire chains this week, to replace a set my company provided me with. Tore the motherf-),&/rs up climbing a 6% grade, on bare asphalt. (Apparently the guys in BC think it's amusing to leave the chain up lights on for no reason) Went to the place where we buy our chains, and the ones I trashed were Chinese. Huh, no kidding. Mild steel pcs of shit. Cost to replace them, $280. The good ones, made in Norway, were $600. High carbon steel, virtually indestructible. Now, since I was replacing someone else's equipment, I bought what I broke, even though it wasn't my fault.

Stay with me here. Now, 2 sets of chains have been purchased, at a cost of $560. $40 less than the good ones, and that's not including wrecking those chains, and leaving me stranded on a mountain pass, had they exploded on a snow covered road. No way UP, and no way down. Completely fucked. When I buy chains for myself, which is going to happen right shortly, it'll be the good ones, cost be damned. Spend money wisely. I also want to support companies who offer quality products, made by competent people. Not a communist regime, who trample human rights, on a good day.

We have answered the China question other times here on Vital.

Moto Hose is the ONLY Silicone Radiator Hose Company Made In the USA. Period.

This was not an easy task and why our competition would like to find out where our Hoses are made.

Moto Hose started selling colored hoses in 2001 and Like most of our silicone radiator hose competition we were made in China. After having quality issues including having to throw a complete order in the trash we Knew there had to be a better way. After scouring we found a facility that met our needs and would make smaller production runs we needed.

That is the story and maybe once and for all this can be put to bed.
