Default Re: Hose clamps

Yup... and shut the fuel off when parked or you may find a puddle under your bike next time ya walk by it...

I buy those little spring clamps either as assortments or in packs of 10 or more, and my second choice for clamping fuel lines or any other small hose that needs to be on really good are the fuel injection clamps, these won't eat into the rubber lines or distort and leak like those worm screw type clamps. Only thing about fuel injection clamps is their limited size availability, finding one that'll clamp a line smaller than 10mm or larger than 12mm is near impossible...
Even if you have to use safety wire it's still better than not using a clamp at all, just don't twist it so tight it cuts into the hose...
