Will a top triple clamp from an '06 fit an '08? Standard offset

Per RG3 the top and bottom clamp are the same, but the stem on the 08 is 5mm shorter.

Not sure about the clamps. The '08 has a trail increase that equates to the use of a 24mm clamp set on an '06. However, the lower fork leg axle lug was redesigned to accommodate the new caliper anyway, and the trail can be altered there as easily as at the clamp. It would make sense for them to have done it like that, since they would then only have to retool one part. If RG3 in fact says the clamps are interchangeable, they most likely are.

Where did you get that info at? I looked on the RG3 web site and couldn't find anything on the '08s. I hope you're right, it will save me some $$$..:thumbsup:


Thanks for the info guys..

No...I just used a local dealer, got tired of trying to find an excellent deal and just went with a deal that was fair/good.

That's good news for me as well. I have an RG3 top clamp coming off of my 07 250F that I want to use on my new 450, so thanks for looking into it...
