HHHHEEELLLPPP Replacing Connector Inlet Hose
2009 DL1000. The front cylinder connector hose split. part number 6 in the cooling diagrams, it's the small maybe 2 inch long hose that goes from the thermostat assembly to the front cylinder. Was able to reach in from the left side and remove the split hose but am not able to install the new hose, there just isn't enough room to work with because of my big hands.
Short of removing the rear throttle assembly, anyone have any ideas? I thought of putting an ad in the local paper to find a mechanically inclined 6 year old with small hands, but thought I'd ask here first.
My last resort is to trailer it to the stealership and have them do it.
