I had to replace both the hoses on my 2000 magnum 325 this past summer and I just pulled them off, went and got new ones and after replacing them fired it up for a few minutes and then checked and added oil. I didn't even give any thought to re priming. Unless you took the pump off and let the oil drain completely out I wouldn't think it would loose prime. When you change your oil you don't get all of the oil out of the cooler and cooler lines. This is probably what holds the prime. If you leave the engine full of oil and the filter in place I don't think taking the hoses off will loose prime.
