I couldn't get a straight answer on the two-stroke forum, so I was wondering if any of you knew if the stock 2010-2012 YZ450F triple [color="#0f72da"][color=#0F72DA !important][font=helvetica, arial, sans-serif][size=4][color=#0F72DA !important][font=helvetica, arial, sans-serif][size=4]clamps[/size][/font][/color][/size][/font][/color][/color] would fit on an 06 YZ250 two stroke. I'm looking for 22 or 22.5mm offset clamps for my YZ250 two stroke and realized that the stock 2010-2012 YZ450F triple clamps are 22mm offset. Would I just need to press out the stem on my current stock YZ250 triple clamps? I can find stock 10-12 YZ450F triple clamps much cheaper on ebay then spending $600+ on RG3 triple clamps for the YZ250. Any help is appreciated. Thanks

You have do do some measuring. There are 3 things to consider:
  • Stem length. If this doesn't match up to a functional level, then you need to know whether the stem can be replaced with yours.
  • Clamp diameters, upper and lower, and whether they match up with your '06 forks
  • Center-to-center distance of the tube clamps. If this is slightly different, it can be corrected by tinkering with wheel spacers and recentering the rim on the hub.
