I've seen the post on securing new clips, but how do you get the buggers off?

These are the ones securing the rubber manifold boot to the throttle body.

Thanks!

Dremel cutting wheel.

You can also stick a small screwdriver in them and wiggle it around a bunch to loosen them.

If you are a bit careful prising them off with a screwdriver they can be reused. I have used a pincer style cutters to crimp them up again without problems, although I expect there is a correct tool for the job.

Swap the clips for the fuel line clips off the R bikes. They are screwtype ss worm drive and suitable for the application. You need 6 of them and position the screw heads where they are accessible without moving stuff. Even the ones on the fuel pressure regulator can be accessed with a long screwdriver if you do this. Everything is then reusable. If you still have original fuel lines on your K bike do this and also put new 40mm longer fuel hoses on and all s good.

Also works for the other large diameter connections to the air box. Just make sure heads do not interfere with throttle mechanism.
