-A SM has a click-on hose connector, which doesn't leak either.

I'll change that part in the manual. thanks

yes, thats the part I cannot change: The small rubber is a nasty thing.. if you have done it a few times it becomes easier

Looks like you did a good job: ring below stud on the correct side etc. nice picture too.
One thing that can be done with the grommet is turn it around and insert from outside -should seal better! The wires can be removed from the connector with a paperclip/wire to do this, but remember to get them back in the same positions.

Also I just discovered yesterday. If one inadvertently bends the tube barbs the pump will not work. Clicks but doesn't pump. It is easily checked by trying to blow thru the pump both ways - shouldn't blow thu one way, and makes a noise ther other. Straightening with a rod fixes it.
My 950KTM makes me feel like a little kid again......because it's so tall!
