I'm going to drain my antifreeze and put engine ice in and I was thinking about ordering white cv4 radiator hoses.. You guys think white is a good choice or maybe blue?

So my local dealer doesn't seem to be able to get the cv4 hoses for 14 and up even though on the cv4 site it says they are distributed by parts unlimited and tucker rocky. So I'm just seeing if any vendors here sell them or should I just get them from them direct

Don't worry, I blew my motor in my 11 got it fully built from top to bottom to be a pretty bad ass motor.
Never got it running right, now it's up on the grab bar in the garage for about the next 8 months because I have zero time to mess with it

You can get just about any color custom ordered through Samco. Took me 2 months to get mine. West coast representative name is Scott. Send him a couple emails and voicemails. He's a busy guy so I had to remind him a couple times.

just my 2 cents, i have a 16 as well with the same color and i found out that the white side panels are very hard to keep clean and in my humble opinion, look like crap when dirty.

you might want to think about changing the side panels to black, they hide all the dirt from riding and looks better when dirty. I just ordered the 2014 black sides, then ordered the 16 graphics to put on. here is what it looks like.

you can get them cheap from partzilla.com
