Stupid mistake (coolant related) and how to replace upper radiator hose?

Hello folks,

I have a 2016 675r, I bought the bike with 93 miles on it. Ever since I got it I’ve been doing upgrades to the bike prepping it for next track season. I got sc project slip on with linkpipe and bodis headers from uk race support. Anyways that project took me a day or so to complete because I didn’t have all the right stuff. But non the less after I finally got it installed I noticed my coolant was below minimum. So you know Idk much about coolants I had a bottle of Motorex m3.0 in my garage and I filled the dxpantion tank to the max level and I did a few drops in the radiator it self not much though. Anyways the bike ran one heat cycle and fan kicked in. While the fan was kicking in I was doing research and found out I just made the biggest mistake I could have made in regards to coolants. Keep in mind one is HOAT and is OAT BASED. but triumph was blue and Motorex was orange non the less I found out that I needed to flush. Luckily I didn’t run the bike too long. So I flushed the bike with distilled water a few times ran it with distilled water until the fan kicked in and I drained it again now I’m ready for new hoses and coolant. Anyways that’s the story on that. But I’ve decided to change my hoses to Samco since the new headers rub against the left side hose, I was able to twist it a bit out of the way and used cool tape which seems good but I decided to go a step further and change to Samco hoses.

Now I cannot for the life of me figure out how to remove the upper radiator hose. The clip holding the hose in place is facing the other side where I can’t reach it. I would need to remove the plastic price just underneath which doesn’t seem to be bolted to anything but idk how it’s hung on there. Please help

That hose is a process to get. You have to remove the air box and then the throttle bodies.

may not be worth the removal then or just leave it for a shop. Doesn't sound like something I want to deal with if thats the only way to get to it.

You can try getting at it and installing the new hose by removing the plastic piece, but it'll be probably less aggravation for the install to remove the throttle bodies.

To remove that plastic piece you just need to lift the tank. The plastic is held in place by a bolt and firtree clip to the subframe iirc. Could be the frame.
