Upper & Lower Triple Clamps
Posted September 10, 2006 - 08:31 AM
My bike was hit by a van while sitting on the trailer and sustained major front end damage(bent f rim,handle bars,upper & lower triple clamps, both forks). I got the insurance settlement now it is time to put it back in shape. I don't want to use the stock Yamaha clamps. What kind of Triple Clamps do you guys recommend and what is out there for the WR line.

Good point and one which is probably overlooked often.
Before you order any of the aftermarket stuff, check to make sure that there are the bosses to mount all of the wiring and related hardware that is mounted on the top triple clamp of the WR. Zip ties look tacky.

should be simple to do with a decent drill press/clamp, drill press can be had for 50 bucks. and just grab the little wire clamp things off your stock parts, they should be reusable.

I am no expert, but when I asked the salesman at Yam, he said they were stronger than the stock ones. He also said that the average rider wouldnt break the stock ones. Aftermarket 3xclamps can also change the angle the forks set the front wheel on the ground, affecting the way the bike handles. Then you can also get clamps that have rubber mounts for the handlebars, reducing vibrations.
Thanx for that Mate....
