Hey Chris - on my 1990 200, the Houston dealer FIRST sold me a kit
which purported to be an update. It consisted of a csmall and large
diameter hose, a new metal tube (with mysterious port and plug) and
clamps. BUT - turns out that at least for my model, there is NO
UPDATE. The proper replacement is still a single hose with a lerge
diameter crankcase end, and small diameter end connecting to the
metal tube which in turn goes to the three-port hose on the rocker
I just got the correct hose, and the Houston deal will accept the
other parts in return...DAMN nice of them, prevents me from screaming
the place down. One thinkt I will do before installing the host is
to spray the WHEE out of it with silicone in an effort to extend its
service life. Retail for the stupid thing is $48.
