    Maybe heating the hose up in some hot water will make it a bit more flexible and u might be able to get it to squeeze over as its only 5mm or 6mm difference.

    sorted it, couldnt get on even when heated up, so put a tiny knick on edge, and forced the fecker on, fits snug as a bug now
    think may fit it onto AFM and go for a blip
