The SamcoSport range of hose clamps have been specifically selected for use on SamcoSport silicone reinforced hose. Made entirely from 18/8 (304) marine grade stainless steel, they are designed to work in the most aggressive and corrosive environments, such as motorcycle applications.
Bike specific hose clamp kits are available to match every hose kit in the range and contain all the necessary clamps to match all the molded hoses (vacuum hose in kits do not have hose clamps provided, due to their small diameters).
I did not want to use a hardware store Kit on such a critical part of my upgrade. These clamps are expensive but so much better then the replacements that can be bought at basic hardware stores. These area heavy duty.
I bought these clamps to replace the OEM when I switched over to their hose kit. The clamps are very well made and robust. Seem to be of a more robust and corrosion resistent material than stock. The problem for me was their size and the fact that they tighten with a 7mm. I didn't carry 7mm nor do I have a 7mm T handle. They are too much for my bike, and made mounting difficult. I ended up reusing OEM.
I ordered these to complete the new hoses, but I really didn't like how wide they are. Actually they are so wide that they pinched the hoses- I couldn't even use them. Save the hassle and buy the oem ones. They are the proper width.
I had a ruined stock clamp from crashing. I bought the by-pass kit and these clamps. I don't like how they fit. They are durable but much wider. The extra width made the clamp want to climb up and away from where I wanted to tighten it. I like the stock clamps better.
