I had the same trouble. S/C needed replacing. Flexi hose looked dodgy so 
decided to changed. However P/O had rounded the connector on the rigid pipe. 
Rigid pipe from Audi = £130plusVAT. I had a S/S braided flexi pipe made 
specially by Braided Steel (agents for Earls in UK). cost £33.00 and easy to 
fit. Make sure you get a fitting that allows a tuight turn out of the M/C. 
Unfortunately it is all buried now otherwise I would measure and photo. 
Lucky for me I had a spare but damaged rigid pipe from a Coupe quattro as a 
pattern for length etc.
The bottom line is it can be done and saves a lot of effort getting a rigid 
pipe to fit.
Good luck
