Do you mean the little plastic ones? I'd simply replace them with standard stainless steel screw-type clamps. Leaking gas is a bad thing.
If you want to reuse the existing clamps, perhaps a circlip tool would work. (In case you don't know what I mean, it's a kind of plier that can work in either direction, to remove or replace a circlip from either the inside or the outside of a part.)
no, they're little metal clamps and they seem to be much tighter than a standard hose clamp can get. They're just a compression type clip on job and I'm not sure if they are supposed to be reusable. I don't think a circlip remover would work as it's an odd shape.
cut them off, they are 1 time use only. i believe they are called ear (yes, ear, not gear) or oetiker clamps. can be had from grainger (kit p/n 4tx96 comes with jaw pincer tool and various diameter clamps)
distributed by grainger, fastenal, msc, manufactured by oetiker (germany)
I wonder if those are anything like the ones on my '00 M900Sie. That one had (at least in the tank it did) a clamp that resembled the one-time use pinch clamps, but would unlatch & relatch so as to be reused. I almost did end up cutting one off, till I looked a bit closer.
They are probably the same thing. They look like they could be reusable, but I think bigbadass is right and that they are single use items. I undid the one on my fuel vent line but never could get it latched back together.
Guys, given that the fork damper rod lock nut is on a rather long threaded section of the damper rod, is there any adjustment to made here and, if so, what does it alter and in which way?
I'm referring the lock nut at the top of the damper rod which the dual-thread rebound adjuster threads...
So I need some guidance from anyone here who lives in Maryland. I am loading my bikes in a 16" Penske truck today and moving to Maryland on Sunday. I see that to get them licensed there I have to get an inspection. My S1K has un-baffeled 2/1 Termis. My 900SS has un-baffeled FBF carbon cans and...
Haven't seen an alternative parts listing on this site. It's common on other Duc forums. Cheap parts alternatives for Supersports would be nice.
Here's a first one;
Just changed my front brake light switch.

Hi Everyone, I just picked up my first Ducati, its a 1994 Super Sport and i am STOKED! On the way home from the sellers my wife noticed i didn't have any lights on the rear tail light at all (no running lights, no brake lights). The first thing i thought of was the bulb was burned...
I have finally managed to get another bike after the lo9ck down. Purchased this last year and had to wait until this week before it turned up. A very low mileage import from the UK, this bike has been in storage for the past 15 or so years with minimal running time. It is pretty original with...
