leo vince SBK exhaust leak

I have a leo vince SBK slip on system on my 04 rc and it has an exhaust leak on the left side pipe where they slip over the stock headers. I tried tightening the exhaust clamp but the torx head is stripped. Anybody know if you can get new clamps or what size aftermarket clamps can be used.
Thanks

Have you tried contacting Leo Vince's tech support yet? Try giving them a call and maybe they can offer new (free replacement?) hardware...

Ok well I called and so far the guy was not very helpful and did not know his product very well. He is supposed to call back to see if i can just get the clamps.with out buying anything else. He tried three times to have me buy a parts kit with hangers claims and repacking kit and I don't need any of that. Then he got it in his I some Ford needed new hangers and not clamps but got it right after explaining I do not need hangers and he pulled up the microfitch on the exhaust hopefully when he calls back it will.be good news

Those types of clamps are available at a good Hydralic Hose, or Rubber store. We have a store here called Capital Rubber, they make up hydralic and high pressure hoses. Do you have a store like that in your area? And it will have a standard hex head bolt as the tightner. Not a regular hose clamp at all. They're stainless steel and look just like your aftermarket exhaust clamps.
