Hi guys

Must be an Italian thing since I have also noticed those clamps on my Italian motorcycle. Talking about the ones found on the intake pipes on the 3.2 and some smaller hoses like the ones on the airbox. When I changed my plugs I found that nipping pliers does a good job of getting them back in place. They do leave a slight mark but I'm sure you will be able to reuse them 3 or 4 times. There might be a special tool out there to do a better job ? Anyway it worked for me.

They are called Clic Clamp Pliers. Google them. Clic is the name of the type of clamp. You get Clic and Clic-R. I imported mine from the UK off E-Bay.

What about the ones around the cooling hoses, specifically the one on the hose that comes from the bottom of the radiator to the thermostat housing on the 2.5 V6 busso engine. Are these reusable? I normally replace them with jubilee clamps because I end up breaking the clamp getting it off. or is there a better tool to remove and refit?
