    Not AWAB but just as good in quality.

    My problem with the IC-TB hose blowing off was not solved by the use of an AWAB clamp but by the replacement of the hose. It appeared that under boost the hose was deforming and causing the clamping force to be reduced. It sounds crazy but this was determined by a good Sea-Doo tech and I haven't had a problem since.

    I know this thread is talking about hose clamp problems on new skis but this solution may help someone who has an older machine.

    Hi I work for a large company in technical department investigating faults.
    We did an investigation on a huge compressed air network with 100000+ hose clams ” 1”. Every time there was a failure it was due to human error both over tightening and under tightening of screw clams. The clamps that performed the best always where ones with some type of spring mechanism that takes quests work out of installation also.
    In production and factory lines the weakest link is speed quality goes out the window.The below paragraph describes what hose clamps need to achieve to work correctly.

    Oetiker clamps are ideal for clamping rubber oil hoses because they maintain clamping force through heat cycles better than worm-drive hose clamps.
    Standard worm-drive clamps can't expand as the hose assembly heats up and, therefore, force the hose material to extrude away from the clamp area during a heat cycle. After just a few heat cycles, they can lose most of their clamping force. Retightening the clamps simply starts the process over. Oetiker clamps can expand with heat and spring back when things cool off. They do not need to be checked or retightened, so the connection is maintenance-free. Sold individually.

    Tip: For leak-free connections in high-pressure installations, install two clamps with the crimping ears clocked 90 degrees to each other.
