Need some info

My bikes developed a collant leak from this pipe. It on the top of the left side of the back cylinder head. It has a spring clamp around it. I was thinking I could change out the clamp to a worm screw type and Maby tighten it up to stop the leak but becouase it appears to be a pipe and not just a hose I was wondering it it might have a o ring that might need replaced. I haven't tore into it yet but I was searching for information so I would know what to expect. Here's a pic of what I'm talking about.

That's a coolant tube with a leaky o-ring. The "clamp" is just a loop to bolt it to the head. Supposed to be a 14mm o-ring, I used a 5/8" from Oreilly's, works fine. I'd change them both. Add a coat of grease to the installed o-ring, wheel bearing, vaseline, etc.

Take your old o-rings out and I bet they're flat on the sides. Also take them and a tube to the parts store.

Thanks now I know what to do. The clamp on a pipe thing had me a little puzzled. An o ring makes since though.

If you got a Kawi dealer nearby it's part # 670B2014. I just happened to change one today for my buddy. It was around .60 cents.
