Oetikers need special crimping pliers.

You could use a t-bolt hose clamp. Regular worm drive clamps aren't best for these hoses.

Or you can get the correct pliers and re-use them but to be honest screw type clamps, not ‘Hose Clamps’ are a better bet.

Screw type? Is that we Poms would call a 'jubilee clip'?

No. Over here they are commonly known as FI hose clips. I’ll have to get a pic.

You can reuse Oetiker clamps? Shocked

I didn't know that.

Aren't F1 clips like Oetikers? You need a tool.

Screw type:

Hmm okey, so its best if I replace my worm-type hose clamp that I fitted for a screw-type hose clamp used for fuel lines etc. Does anyone happen to know the correct diameter for the clamps? As these are less adjustable than the worm-type clamps.

You can't reuse oetiker clamps - the metal work hardens then fails at some (unknown) pre-determined time

Last week I bought a pack of 10 14-16mm for under AU$10 from ebay.
Tested one on a hose & the sizing seems right.

Well I am ashamed to say that I have had the breather hose and clip replaced by Moto Corsa in Dorset. Probably could have done it myself but trying to find the correct replacement clip/size and the correct hose from the myriad selection available I decided easier to just give it to Moto Corsa. They have also checked and balanced the throttles as it was quite abrupt on and off power, now seems much better.
Thanks to all the GRiSO-ista here for help and advice. All sorted and with the Wilbers shock, and forks all set up is handling superbly and running beautifully.
