I have a 2004 Spyder Imagine Select. Where can i find a plastic hose to replace the braided metal one? Or can i even put a plastic hose on it?

you'll need a straight and a 90* macro fitting and a metric to NPT adapter.

Will I need 2 adapters if im using the stock drop forward, or just 1? And this is totally compatible with an all stock?

Spyder air fittings are metric. The adapters convert the metric to standard thread. If you keep the spyder all stock (with the exception to replacing the braided line) you will need both adapters - one for the asa and one for the vertical front grip/gas-through.

If installing an aftermarket on/off ASA...and/or an aftermarket Expansion chamber/regulator to the VA...then you only need the macro fittings in standard thread and then you won't need the adapter fittings.

Why would yo want to do such a thing? SS braid is much stronger than macroline.

I have had problems with my braided line, getting a leak where it bends in the middle.

ah, i forgot about the select, for that you'll need 2 adapters. the regular spyder bottomline is 1/8NPT threaded, but kingman's drop-forward bottomlines are metric.

i've never had problems with my macro. i know about the shrink-wrap to change the color of the SS and all, but the main reason that i use macro is because i hate having a hose thats too long. with macro i can cut it to just the right size.

I just figured out that I have a 2003 Imagine Select, not a 2004. Sorry. Will I still need just 2 macroline adapters?

yes, if it has a drop forward, you'll need 2.
