I have 08 yz450 complete triple clamps, Does anyone know if it will bolt right up to a 06 yz450?

You will have to swap out the steering stem, the 06 had a longer stem. Other than that they are essentially the same.

There's no real reason to change the lower clamp. The offset is the same as the '06. I'm not sure what advantage there is to using the top clamp,either, unless yoy have damaged parts, or are retrieving your custom clamps prior to sale.
