    '93 K1100 LT Radiator Hose

    I purchased this bike in 2016 and have put about 50,000 miles on it. It has about 85,000 miles on it now. Yesterday while riding the radiator hose that leads from the thermostat housing to the left side of the engine popped loose spewing hot coolant on my right leg. The radiator hose leading from the thermostat to the water pump also looked like it starter to move. The only thing I can think of that would cause the hose to come off is too much pressure in the cooling system caused by the pressure relief valve in the cap not opening at the designed pressure.

    Of course, could also be just loose hose clamps.

    Any thoughts?
