R1200RT (2011) Hose Clamps

I decided to replace the hose clamps after doing some maintenance recently that involved removing the throttle bodies and air hoses. I just ordered 2 each of 11617723636, 13717680687 & 13717728769, and I I'd like to know the correct tool to install these. I'm sure it's at least possible with just needle nose pliers, but I'd like to find the right tool for the job.

It seems like there's a tool for several different kind of hose clamps, all with names that could be easily confused with one another. "Muffler Clamp" doesn't seem to be enough information to distinguish these particular clamps from others.

Any idea what specific tool is called for to install and/or remove these?

For the throttle bodies clamps, you will need Oetiker clamp pliers
These are the ones I got

If you can park it, and not turn around to admire it before walking away, you bought the wrong one.

Thanks! For the record, it looks like this is the BMW OEM clamp: https://www.oetiker.com/en/Products/...e-Clamp-PG-168 Or do they just look a lot like them?

According to Oetiker, they're reusable! I didn't use the right tool to remove them so I'm considering them trash, and since they're so cheap I'm just replacing them anyway.

I think I found the tool on Amazon: https://www.amazon.com/Lisle-30500-B.../dp/B0002SREB8

I knew 0% about these until asking, and ordered the OEM clamps just in case.

I can report that I received the Lisle pliers yesterday afternoon and they worked 100%. I was even able to reuse the original clamps, so the new ones will go in the toolbox as spares until the need arises.

I recommend Lisle 30500 pliers without reservation. The cheapest option anywhere and MADE IN USA!

The only caveat is they don't have a double hinge like the Oetiker tool so they have to open fully to contact both catches if they're needed to draw the clamp closed. It was a little awkward until they were close to closing.
