I was using stock CRF tripleclamps on my 650R for a while too, and I ended up using a Scotts low-mount setup. Worked alright, but affected light/fairing options. With those tripleclamps, you're pretty much limited to using a dipstick-mounted stabilizer post (sucks). Or you could get a CR500 upper tripleclamp and use that with a forward-mounted frame clamp, but it will still limit the steering a bit. Not trying to talk you out of anything, and we'd love to sell you a set of tripleclamps, just sharing info so you can make an informed decision.

This is near the solution you're talking about?

I would like to keep my temperature oil dipstick (information)...if no other option I would consider to remove it and install some other temperature oil info like Vapor...but the best solution (not sure) would be something like this for CRF Showa forks.

Limit in what way? Could you explain it?

Tnks man, I appreciate all the info.

With GatosBros triple clamp I would install Scotts damper low-mount setup and using a dipstick-mounted stabilize, correct?

Yes, exactly. That's the option I chose.

Agree with you. Personally, would not consider a dipstick mount a viable option.

The CR/F upper tripleclamps make it flat-out impossible to use a Scotts forward-mount frame clamp/stabilizer post. CR500 upper tripleclamp sort of works, but it limits the steering.

No. Our tripleclamps are designed to use this forward-mount frame bracket. I designed the upper tripleclamp around it, and you can see the clearance at full-lock steering in these screen-captures.

The machinist we've been using is really jammed-up right now, so we're looking for other manufacturing options. Also just talked to Gary at Emig Racing and sent him a link to this thread to see if he might be willing to make these tripleclamps for us.

It's been a while, but I had one and don't remember any clearance issues. Will verify fit as soon as we can get samples made.

Not for the L, no. Think we might just use the R conversion tripleclamps and add steering stops to the L frames. Ordered an XR400 oil cooler so we can make something that will incorporate the oil cooler mounts into the steering stops.

Any word on when these might be coming out? I've got the forks, just need a set of clamps.

Sorry for taking so long to reply. We finally found a machine shop who is able to make these for us in small quantities at reasonable prices. We're just figuring out costs on a few last things and then we'll be taking pre-orders. Will be contacting everyone on our list as soon as we've nailed-down final pricing and have an estimated delivery date.
