    In tank vent hoses

    How often should in tank vent hoses be replaced? I have 1994 R1100RS 77,000 miles I bought bike 8/3/2010 had 27,000 miles on it. Thinking vent hoses at least 7 years old with 50,000 miles on them, they don't seem soft or seem to be deteriorating what is recommended service interval?
    Thanks

    There is no recommended interval I am aware of. But, if you have the plate off and access to the hoses my opinion, at this age, is to replace them.

    Ditto. And I'd add that if your other in-tank hoses fail, I'd replace them all, including thenvent hoses.
