    The problem with those clamps is they are too thin. They are capable to hold only about 30-50 kg clamping force without permanent deforming. It looks like Buell has very limited space in those area, and they can not just simply do these clamps thicker and bigger, it would lead them to redesign this engine area and increasing developing cost, and they decided so settle on this crappy design. So this is one more weak place in this motorcycle.

    So just gonna ask because I am legit confused and not sure if being trolled. Will the blue gaskets actually stress the steel intake manifold flanges?
