Swm issue

My old man has a swm 500rs and the throttle body pops out of the intake boot. He replaced the hose clamp with a good stainless one but it seems like the body doesn't have a big enough lip to hold it in. It happened today after not doing it for a while. Has anyone had this issue?

Stuff knows Bennawaters88... My few thoughts:
You certainly don't want dusty air in the engine.

I'm not familiar with that/his bike whatsoever:
Yet, it is an issue & it definitely needs sorting.

There should never be positive-pressure in the throttle body:
If there is, to blow it off, then-that is a whole other problem.

I'm assuming some poor engineering/fitting on the builders part:
You & your dad are just gunna have to get that sorted/sussed.

That's all I'm personally able to offer you atm, I know it's scant:
Hopefully others, more knowledgeable than I am, will contribute.
