Well documented on here. 12 months seems to be the usual lifespan.

At least you can get silicone ones now.

The real question is are these kevlar pipes still being sold to unsuspecting owners by marque specialists?

They are faulty and the batch should have scrapped years ago...

Yes they are ,but i still see them being recommended from time to time on here and the face book page.As its club traders selling them and not some scrote on ebay it causes a bit less outrage 😊

I don't think i can Roger , but it's usually when some new member or owner enquires about hoses, and the person recommending the traders must be unaware of the problems..The better ones tend to get mentioned more now....you at Goodwood Sunday Roger ?
