AIS Kit and Radiator Hose

Alright, I'm deep into removing the AIS from my 2011 WR450, and got stuck on the second bolt on the plate attached to the motor.  I can't reach this screw due to the radiator hose blocking it.  I read other posts about removing the hose and losing coolant all over the place.  Before I make any more stupid mistakes, can anyone help me with my best course of action at this point?

 

Thanks!

crimp hose before removing, maybe?

Yes, you can crimp the hose with a woodworkers clamp, or, you can use a box ratchet and allen bit too.

I was afraid of damaging the hose by crimping it, but it worked like a charm.  Thanks guys!
