    Almost $500 for new hoses? The current estimate is roughly $700 to service my Cyklon Metal rig (first & 2 seconds) due to hose replacements.

    Any better options?

    Get the hose Poseidon adapters and use normal hoses. You can get s 90* swivel that’s made to fit you cyklon and will adapt you to normal hoses at the same time, I have 90* swivels on all my primary regs anyway.

    buy the omniswivel adapters and use normal hoses. They have straight, 90*, and ball swivel in ascending order of both price and comfort

    I better get a better description than misc part ect for $96.87 as an example.

    I'm glad my Cyklon hoses and adapters cost less, of course it was DIY, so I don't mark up the price to myself.

    Think of all the extra free-money you could make...

    Their explanation was adapter parts.

    We all get bitten from time to time; I wanted a fresh warranty on my 300’s, which required an ‘authorized service’.

    Thing that caught my eye... $15.00 for spg swivel o-rings?? Not even a new swivel? Is this a car dealership?
    Agreed on the misc parts. I see two that would relate to hose swivels, what is the third one?

    Sound more like putting extra beer money in my right pocket by taking the beer money out of my left.
