I split it using a dremel to get the "special tool required" hose clamp off to replace them with... the simpler ones shown on the fiche. Funny the ones I cut off aren't the ones they have here.

Thanks folks
any leak is definitely a problem
I marked my hose trying to fit my TT tank. Is that how you damaged yours?
I would like to replace my hoses with silicone hose to provide added protection against the hot header issue
Agree it would be interesting to know of any non-BMW hoses that might fit.....anyone??
