I've got an 05 450 I use for supermoto and it desperately needs a different offset triple clamp. -13mm would be ideal. I can't find anything for my year, but it looks like companies make them for the  07-08 models. Are they compatible with my 05?

06 and up clamps are 2mm wider so the spacing would be off a bit.  To be honest I run a 04 fork on my 07 supermoto and I don't even worry about the 2mm difference.  It does not affect handling.

 

If it bothers you run 1mm spacer on the brake side.  Depending on what caliper set up you are running you may have to space it appropriately to line up also.
