So, as far as I can tell, the only advantage to going with an all new clamp is,(1) It looks cool. (2) Choice of handlebar position.
I'm going to cheap-out and put on a set of 7/8 Bend-thals. Having the coolest looking bike is overated. Keep it as stock looking as possible. That way, when you go fast it's more impressive. When you go slow, you have an excuse...

If you mean the bar mount adapters that fit your stock clamp, then i had it on my WR4.
It raised the bars a bit but i put on Acerbis PHS bars that were on the low bend so they evened out.
I dropped a couple of times but The bars and adapters were fine but my stock clamps were teaked a bit,
especially where the bars were held.
I suggest if you are looking for the ultimate upgrade then you should buy the top triple clamp,
this will allow you to move the bars up a bit and forward.
You will also have a more solid connection between your top triple, bar mounts and handlebars.
I sold my setup and got the pro taper triple clamps and mated to a Renthal Fat Bar...
Sweet set up..
Just my 2 cents..........
