When, or DO, you replace the rubber hoses?

When had my airbox off there were two rubber tubes attached to some device that was screwed onto the airbox. I noticed the rubber was starting to crack and started looking at the rest of the hoses. None are really bad, but there are signs they getting old.

I squeezed the coolant hose and it didn't crack or make any noises, it seemed fine, but the some of the others are looking like they're on the way out.

I don't know anybody that has replaced the coolant hoses on a bike out of pure PM!
I do! PM is cheap...have you ever had a hose or belt break, or a tire go flat at a convenient time??...Hoses are cheap and easy to replace...I change mine when I flush and change the cooling system fluid...
Hose is hose...If the temp and pressure ratings are the same, does it matter? they probably all come from the same factory anyway
