Ultimaker2 bowden clamps

Hello everyone

Trying to reduce the frictions of the bowden, I'm considering using a 4mm ID / 6mm OD bowden tube

It seems better when trying to move the filament manually inside it

However, the original clamps are too large for it (the stock bowden is like 6.35mm OD)

I've considered using alternative clamps, like Owen's, but it seems only adapted for Ultimaker1 (http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:11864).

I also could add Teflon band to enlarge the tube on the ends... any advice?

Is there good clamps that would adapt to slightly smallest tubes?
