Top Triple Clamp Off-Set
Posted October 25, 2002 - 08:21 AM
The handlebars are now 1.5 cm further forward, which is nice for my 6'3" frame, but the clamp tower and shear pin do not reach the damper. I believe that I can get a different "arm" that I can switch out on the damper, but that will cost.
I just put Jimmy Buttons on last week, and the cockpit is nice, but this 1.5 cm further forward only helps for comfort, but what will the handling characteristics be?
I put the new triple clamp on last night, and I plan on riding this weekend, but it will have to be with out the damper. Will know more by Monday, but does anybody have any input on this?

Gotta figure out measurements "A" and "C" from the "I want to buy a damper or a damper kit/Click Here for Off-Road/Find Here how to determine your barclamp"
and that should solve my problems (and your buddy's too, Kaz) (Uh, maybe I could READ YOUR POST? Your buddies prob IS solved).
Bought the top clamp for $5.00 off of E-bay, but the new bar clamp will be $65.00.
Can't win for loosing!
PS: Do we know what the handleing characteristics will be with the bars moved farther forward?

We have a friend that is working on a stainless cage to wrap the dampner to guard against branch strikes.
