Anybody every try them?
Silicone hose creeps and deforms easily under normal clamps, they are renowned for leakage in the car world and that's why constant pressure clamps are used to maintain uniform clamping force over the temp cycle range. Normal clamps just don't cut it in daily use with silicone hoses.I used the same clamps the other guys mentioned but I cant see any problem re-using your clamps if they are in great condition. They are 4-ply reinforced so a little "squeeze" through the slots should not effect the life. They really don't need to be THAT tight anyways.
Samco is the most overpriced item you can buy for any motor vehicle. They are the reason why I am working with Ven-Air Inc. to get hoses to market for Ford GT500's. Samco's current set price is $800, we are looking at half that at max.Nice prices. The Samco ones are probably one of the most overpriced item you can ever buy for these bikes. It's a simple hose made out of silicone and you charge 100-200 euros for those. Great to see alternatives.
