Unhappy Yamaha R6 Problem

I have a 2004 R6 and need some help on which is the best way in repairing or replacing a hoses that comes from the radiator. It's the hose where the Headers run towards the exshauts. I have some pictures so maybe that will help but I must tell you that it was taking in the night so I did my best. Some of these were different shots cause the angel was my best I could do.

Any help will do... I need to know whats the best way to get to it and it's not busted or nothing like that but it does leak. I was coming back from Baybrook mall and as I was going home I can smell the fluids but never notice nothing until I look down and saw like a waterfall was pouring.... And then I notice the Temp was increasing as I was waiting on the light to change really quick and even when I was riding down picking up speed the Temp would only drop like 2 degree's but nothing more. So please help me?

best way is to drain the fluid, and replace the hose and the fastener if needed.

Trav, I was see what's the best way in replacing or repairing the hose. Also where would be a good place in finding the part.

AJ600RR, your right about draining everything before removing the hose completely, but if theirs nothing wrong with the hose should I just reuse it or replace it or would anyone have a spare pair theyvare willing to either give or sale??

looks like you just need to replace the hose clamps.
Hard to tell fro the pics, but the hoses seem ok

you cant tell if hoses seem "ok" from pictures. its always better to be safe than sorry. the hose is $27 on ron ayers.com part#4JH-12577-00-00 (hard to tell by the pics what i am looking at, but this one looks like it to me) and clamps are cheap. an overheated/damaged engine is not so cheap. besides, it gives you a good excuse to do a good coolant flush

That is the one I'm looking for... Thanks for the help! this was the one that from the top of the hose was leaking from and that's not bad of a price. Also lucky I wasn't that far from home cause then it would have done some damage to the engine. Thanks for the look out.
