999 fuel filter hose clamps

I am in the process of replacing the fuel filter and realize that the clamps on the hoses connected to the filter are not reusable. Do I need to get the Duc ones or are there other ones I can use? Thanks

I just replaced mine on my 2003 999. I used the simple band type clamps where you just tighten the screw to adjust the clamping force. The fricken' name escapes me right now, they'll do fine.

you should keep the oem style clamps,they are reuseable. the worm style clamps have been known to give issues on the harder fuelpump lines

I put two of the regular hose clamps on but havent finish installing the assembly, waiting on the shop to open to get a o ring. How do you reuse the OEM ones?

Factory ones are unreliable. I had to switch to worm/screw types.

only when someone doesn't install them right.think about it,why would ducati use these ''specialty''clamps inside the tank in the first place,and worm clamps elsewhere.there is a correct pliers for these clamps too

OK, so how do I remove those "specialty" clamps, and put 'em back on?


I hate working with fuel lines

These special fuel line clamps are NOT reuseable. You will have to get new ones from a parts source or Ducati, Italy. A special clamping plier is used to squeeze them tight.....heck w/ that...I just used the wormy ones-figured I'll replace the fuel filter in a year or two and I highly doubt they'll do any harm to the line till then.
The Ducati clamps are $4 ea. plus the cost of the special pliers!

I just looked real quick, but this link (just as a reference) has some that are better then the “Worm” type. Worm clamps are not as strong and also tend to cut the hose -- usually won’t let you tighten them “enough” (for fuel injection hose) before skipping out of the groove and stripping -- not really made for fuel injection hose that is stiffer and or thicker to withstand the higher pressures so the clamp needs to be stronger. I’ve used this style that should be available at a local auto parts store -- The screw and nut aren’t of the best quality usually (Made in Taiwan crap) but still better then worn style hose clamps IMO.
