04 450 triple clamps
Posted October 25, 2004 - 01:27 PM
1. What does the "wrap style" clamp mean and what is the alternative?
2. I have 46mm forks on the 450 04 model according to the spec, BUT the diameter of the hole in the clamps is far greater than that! What does the 46mm relate to, an internal valve diameter?
Is there much benefit in fitting just a top clamp, ie for different, adjustable bars etc, or should I get a compelt top and bottom set?
I presume buying a clamp set for the 03 YZ 450 will be the same a buyin for the 04 WR 450? Somene said the clamp bolys are in a diff position on the YZs, so as not to be obscured by the headlight. ID this so, and if it is, is it just less convenient to fit them to the WR, or can they litterally not fit?
I am interested in some hurricane clamps maybe? Anyone know if these are available for the wr450 04 model? Where from??
I know some of these q's have been asked before, but I have not found 100% lear answers on these issues up to now. All help greatly appreciated.

The wrap does move the bars a bit foreward vs the other model. I believe it was 5mm. It is worth paying extra for. The bike is much more comfortable. The wrap model also has the mounting holes for the stock odometer if that is important to you. I would not bother replacing th elower clamp unless you cannot stand the look of the stock clamp. Most aftermarket clamps are heavier and dont do anything special for the bike.

The hurricane looks nice but looks more bulky than the rg3. Will order tomorrow!!
