    Nice fit.
    Kit does what it says, removes the thermostat with high quality hoses precut to exact fit. Easy to install.

    SamcoSport Radiator Hose Kit with Thermostat Bypass
    Wanted to keep the bike cooler so I got this kit. Installation on the 2015 KTM is a pain with the engine installed. You have to cut the stock pipe in the frame several times to get it out and make sure you plug off all open holes to engine and radiators.

    Looks nice and fits well.
    Seems to be high quality silicone. It all fit very well. And Incase you didn’t understand the descriptions (like me) it eliminates the factory thermostat assembly.

    Fitment issues
    Quality is great. No question about that but fitment has been an issue. Either way I mount the Y hose I get binding between the hose, engine harness, and fuel tank. Ended up just pushing the tank down against the hose and harness so I could ride but I still need to come up with a final solution.

    I’m wondering if the Y is generic and not necessarily vehicle specific.

    Im on a 2018 beta 300rr. So this review only applies to that model. I would imagine samcos products work great on most applications.

    Cool Down your Bike
    My bike ran super hot with the stock setup and the thermostat. This kit made my bike run a lot cooler and looks great too.

    Radiator Hoses
    From stock, these hoses reduced my engine temperature 10-20 degrees. I ended up getting an external fan as well since the KTMs are known to heat up in technical sections.

    I am looking to eliminate my thermostat on my 2018 ktm 300xcw. Will this kit delete and have all the necessary hardware to do so?
    Mike H on Sep 14, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: This kit will eliminate the thermostat. You might want to get the SamcoSport Frame T-Piece Hose while you're at it. If you can get the stainless steel radiator clamps at the same time. I also changed out my fuel tap line. Not sure if RockyMountain ATVMC sells those things, but I had to order all the other things from a different website.
    Does this come with everything (besides clamps) to perform the bypass. Do I need to order some kind of plug for any ports not covered? Working on a 2013 KTM 300 xcw
    Austin F. on Aug 16, 2019
    BEST ANSWER: It comes with all the needed hose pieces. As you stated, no clamps. They are a little pricey, but I recommend getting them. They are high quality clamps.These hoses are a little bit bigger diameter and the stock ones just barely reach. Fit great and have been performing with no issues
    Do you need another kit to complete installation on a 2013 300 xc w. I have a thermostat and looking to eliminate. I got the 3 hose kit but not seeing how this will be all I need. Do you have a video on installation?
    Chris F on Mar 29, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: Hi there. Yes the hose kit you are looking at is all you need to complete the job. Other than radiator fluid to replace the old fluid. Unless you are on a super tight budget and retrieve all the old fluid when draining it (if the fluid is relatively fresh anyway). I did the same kit on my 2014 KTM 300 which should be an identical coolant system as your 2013 and like it a lot! I don't recall if rm has a how two video but there are how to videos available somewhere on the web. If anything, the only thing you might need is a few hose clamps. If I remember correctly, there is a hose clamp kit available for purchase separately but you don't have to use that one. You can just buy a few hose clamps at your local auto parts store if it turns out you needed one or two but it's likely you won't need any. I was a little bit confused as well when I was purchasing my thermostat bypass kit but once I had it in my hands and the bike in front of me, it all made sense. Good luck and enjoy 😊.
    Does it affect the operation of the radiator fan other than obviously not running as much because it’s cooler?
    James T on Oct 12, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: I installed this samco kit with a cooling fan at the same time. My fan has yet to come on with this hose kit and runs much cooler. To answer your question, with my bike I bypassed the thermostat with this hose kit and the fan does not come on but I can also program my fan when to come on which is 195 degrees. But I do notice my bike running cooler with these hoses.
    Do I cut the stock temperature probe into the new Samco hose?
    A shopper on Feb 4, 2018
    BEST ANSWER: No the thermostat come off the temp sensor is in the bottom of the radiator. So your fan will kick on still.
    Will the Samco silicone hose T-Stat bypass kit work for a 2016 Husqvarna FE 350s ?
