2004 FXHO Fuel Line Hose Clamp Crimping Tool
Last spring I adjusted the valves on my 2004 FXHO and disconnected the fuel line from the rail. I cut off the old crimp-on hose clamp and replaced it with a high-pressure bolt-on clamp. It held up all summer but the bolt recently backed-off and fuel leaks out under pressure. I bought some of the crimp on clamps from Yamaha but I now need to know what kind of tool to buy to do the crimping. Any ideas?

End cutters work just fine...and they are as close as your nearest Sears.
I use Channel Lock #357, for the really big clamps...and the Sears #45667, for the smaller (most) of the others.
Bought both of these at Sears....
Thanks for the link to McMaster-Carr for the clamps! I prefer the OEM 'look' for my ski...and actually believe that these clamps work better than the worm gear style.
