Hose clamp for ring compressor

I have used a large hose clamp before. They work really well.
Use along with a piece of aluminum can, as mentioned above, in order to cover over the rough parts of the clamp. (worm gear etc.)
(We call it aluminium on this side of the world)

P.S. great thread. It is very interesting to see the F800 in pieces. My bike is a high mileage ex rental. So I am keen on any information on tearing it down in case I have to do the same one day.
It has done 97,000km. The last 8,000km with me as owner. I have had no issues so far. Apart from LH hot grip which I have fixed. (Following one of the threads here)
