Silicone Radiator Hose Kit
2006-2015 MX-5 - ALL
A radiator water hose set isn’t typically an item that you wake up on a Saturday morning and decide to replace. Usually you’ll undertake this replacement if a hose has failed, you’re replacing a failed radiator or thermostat, or you’ve been eyeing one of your old, original hoses with suspicion. You can either replace your MX-5 radiator hoses with a set of generic OE replacement hoses from the local auto store or upgrade to set of highly durable and attractive silicone aftermarket hoses.
Our Racing Beat radiator hose set for the MX-5 NC is specifically made for Racing Beat and features 4-ply silicone construction. Based on the Mazda OE hose set, our MX-5 hose kit is a direct replacement for the stock hoses and will likely be the last set of hoses you’ll ever need to buy. The kit includes FIVE (5) required hoses and clamps: Inlet Upper Hose, Inlet Lower Hose, Outlet Upper Hose, Outlet Lower Hose, Supplemental Tank Hose (smaller diameter hose).
We’ve selected a shielded-style hose clamp for use with our MX-5 silicone hoses to prevent damage to the hoses during tightening and adjustment. Standard worm-gear hose clamps that do not feature an inside shield will allow the worm-gear to chew into the silicone material as the clamp is being tightened. The shielded version creates a buffer between the worm-gear and the hose, offering a layer of protection for the surface of the hose. (Standard clamps used on the 5/8" OD supplemental tank hose.)
We had the option of selecting a broad range of colors for our MX-5 hose set: black, red, yellow, etc.. but decided to select a color that fit within the Racing Beat color scheme, offered an attractive under hood appearance, and wasn’t too overwhelming and bright. Printed with the Racing Beat name and logo on each hose end and finished with the corresponding Mazda-designated application number.
