    Are these 2003 xlt1200 oil line connections stock????

    Hi all, just wondering if someone who has replaced the oil lines on an xlt1200 can look at these photos and let me know if these are the stock connections. I was expecting zip ties but there are some type of crimpless stainless bands on there (at least at the oil pump). Dont want to remove the stinger if these appear to have already been replaced.... ( and if these are stock whats the best way to get them off???)

    Should these be replaced or was this an upgraded connection to the zip strips?

    Those are stock for later year XLT and GPR. They are fine if good and tight, its the connection at the carb that has a zip tie on all the models, and they are suspect and problematic. McMaster Carr sells a metal crimp clamp similar to those that make for a good, secure connection.
    PS: If they are tight and not leaking, why would you want to take them off?

    I knew that the connections were problematic but wasnt sure from looking at those bands. Bought the ski with a bad bendix and wanted to hit the oil lines and pvs. i ended up pulling the singer of. Zip ties were loose. I did buy the crimp connector but can't get it to fit without major surgery. I ended up putting on a much larger zip tie which looks like it should hold fine with the extra tubing length (i hope)

    If you are talking about getting to the clamp to clamp it, I bought the clamp tool, then ground away on the side so it would have clearance to slide in there and clamp. Another option is to get the soft stainless lock tie wire, wrap and tie them off with it. I would be hesitant with the plastic tie wraps, just too much to risk.

    Didnt think about grinding it down. Have to see if it will work with the double sided one I bought. Do you have a link to see what those stainless strips look like? I have never seen them. I was torn on what to do. I was able to get the oteker clip on one and actually thought I had a betr grip with the large tie wrap.
