On my 2001 X-Star, the 3 hoses connected to the center ballast are kinked (see attached pictures). They must be too long and the weight of the full bag bent them. One hose even leaks. If I cut them off at the kinks, there's not much left sticking out. Any ideas on what to do in terms of what I could use to extend from the cut off area (assuming I cut it) to the bag nozzle?
Any other suggestions on how to handle this?
