    2.5" is 63mm (give or take) so could be squeezed over... I have used 60mm silicon bellows joiners on 63mm pipe before... to be honest it depends on the the hose... I have seen 60mm hoses that are either a loose fit of a tight fit on 60mm alloy pipes...

    Are you looking to replace the hose coming from the grey hard pipe up top that goes between the washer bottle and the headlight? why not just buy an aftermarket kit like the ones Forge sell?
