    yeah likely because they will see if they have something that matches even if it isn't from the specific model etc

    '87 to '88 FZR 1000 uses the same hose. According to Google searching, that part number has been discontinued, so finding a new one will be very good luck.
    If all else fails, take the hose to a decent car spares place and they can possibly match it up. I did that on a friends' '91 KTM 540 two stroke. Dudes at Midas got a Toyota hose that almost matched and we cut it a bit shorter on both ends and made it work.

    If that does not work, use the ends of the hose and pop in a metal pipe (if the hose is busted in the middle).

    Hope you come right, buddy.

    Agreed.

    - Midas or some such for a similar part.
    - Midas or some such for any reinforced pipe that could work.
    - Mica for a piece of copper / steel / aluminium pipe to insert where the crack is.
