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.
