Not sure the ZN1300 and the KZ1300 use the same rad hose - the part numbers are different - but I'm curious, since the OEM hoses are NLA, what hoses are you guys chopping up to work with your KZ1300's?

I bought an off the shelf silicone hose with a 135° bend and a straight silicone hose.  As it turns out there was plenty left over after cutting the top hose to make the bottom hose

Any chance you have a part number or fitment list for the hose you used?

I'm still following up in this.  I think I've found a suitable hose, but I've read some stuff on silicone hoses needing special clamps.  Did you reuse the OEM clamps?
