When will they make silicone hoses for the breather/oil separator system?

Or are they already available out there?

In the past five years I have replaced my oil separator/breather pipes twice.
I know what killed it... at two points over those years I had no choice but to make very short journey's... I even had the winter hoses and those cracked too.

This pipery/hosery (making my own words for a collection of pipes) get exposed to a lot of heat etc.

An oil catch can is on order but there is a 3 month wait for this.

Cheers.

I have brought some silicone hose in different lengths and diameters and I am going to DIY the install if possible.
